Women In Leadership – Part 3

From New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, to Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen, women leaders have delivered inspiring leadership during the ongoing pandemic. Our ‘Women In Leadership’ series features senior executives who steadied the ship, capitalised on opportunities, and have kept innovation on the boil over the last two years. In interviews with InterGlobix Magazine’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief Jasmine Bedi, seven women leaders discuss the challenges and opportunities that have arisen since March 2020, the importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and the evolving role of women in the industry.
