Breaking Down the Barriers: Women in Economic and Political Leadership” is the latest feature-length interview done by the Center for International Private Enterprise, one of the four arms of the National Endowment for Democracy.   It’s a topic near to my heart, and so is this interview as I am the expert who is featured!  The interview touches upon critically important topics: how women’s leadership (and women leaders) contribute to economic, social and political progress; the role of business associations to promote women and business; the importance of women on corporate boards; tools such as quotas, voluntary or otherwise, and supplier diversity to drive change; and the important role of male allies.  Many thanks to CIPE and especially Caroline Scullin for this opportunity.
