JCI Malta, together with a panel of inspiring speakers, brings you this online Business Breakfast that will tackle the topic of women in leadership positions.
Has the glass ceiling been broken, or is it just cracked?
The purpose of the panel is to bring together women leaders to tap into their experience in achieving their roles.
We’ll discuss how they did it, what advice they have for aspiring women CEOs and other leadership positions, what are the skills needed at C-Level, and how to develop those skills to give themselves the best possible chance? We will also explore the topic of quotas on boards for women.
