What are the obstacles that a woman faces on her path to leadership? In this course, you'll explore why gender matters. You'll examine the issues facing female leaders, including the challenge of balancing family with work, and how to change your personal views to help you overcome these issues. You'll also learn how to develop competence, confidence, and a personal brand.
