The Next Generation of Women Leaders
IN THIS SUMMARY
As a first year MBA student and aspiring leader, Selena Rezvani decided to find out how current women executives did overcome the barriers to leadership and attained the positions they have today. In The Next Generation of Women Leaders, Rezvani interviewed 30 women CEOs, CFOs, COOs, chairs, presidents, and executive vice presidents to learn specifically what they wished they had known early in their careers and what was most instrumental in their advancement to their current positions. Based on their responses, she found seven themes and accompanying tools available for Generation X and Y women to use in their pursuit of career advancement, and eventually the attainment of an executive role.
