Workforce now is more diverse than ever, we are raised in different eras, hence we have leaders from different generations. While the leadership experience is unique to different women/generation, all women leaders would have faced challenges due to stereotypes, lack of sufficient role models, and the pressure of family responsibilities. As women leaders would have also had their share of respect, benefits or advantages. With men comprising a high percentage of those in the leadership space, it can be difficult as a woman trying to compete. Even tech giants have extremely low numbers of women in their leadership roles. Do organizations acknowledge and provide differential support? Does it make the workplace an even playing field for women leaders? This panel will unfold leadership challenges, differential support and benefits for leaders at each generation.
