How do we define power? Does our definition of power make it more difficult for women to be promoted into leadership positions? And do we therefore need to update our definition of power?
To answer these questions, Mrs. Guth, Prof. Gerpott, and Dr. Surmann initiated a conference on “Women. Power. Leadership.” at the WHU Executive Campus in Düsseldorf. More than 60 female leaders, high potentials and researchers came together to share experiences as well as develop an agenda for the future. The initiators are alumnae of the German National Scholarship Foundation and were supported by the Alumni Association of the German National Scholarship Foundation, the regional chapter STUARD of the Alumni foundation, and the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management.
