People & Purpose Calls Attention To Women In Leadership

The Summer 2016 issue of People & Purpose shares stories of successful female leaders and discusses the challenges of women in leadership roles.

People & Purpose – Positive Leadership Journal released a new issue for Summer 2016, focusing on successful women in leadership positions, impactful stories and sharing a framework to help personal development.

The Summer 2016 issue of People & Purpose – Positive Leadership Journal is now available. The new multimedia issue shares stories of successful female leaders and discusses the challenges for women in leadership roles – and is now available for free at and on iTunes and Google Play.

“Against the backdrop of Theresa May taking office as the UK’s second ever female Prime Minister and Hillary Clinton potentially becoming the first woman President, women at work are still paid significantly less than men. Yet there are some shining examples of women at the helm of corporations, their own companies and communities. As an increasing number of female leaders find their way to the top of organisations and find their voice, one thing is clear: enabling women in leadership benefits all. It is not a binary or a win-lose issue: more diverse organisations are more successful in terms of finances, talent retention and innovation.” commented Eszter Molnar Mills, Editor-in-Chief of People & Purpose.
