Alice Eagly zum Thema Frauen und Führung

Are people prejudiced against women as leaders? Do women lead differently than men? Are women better leaders than men? Do we need a quota for women to insure equal opportunity for women as managers?

These and related questions have recently sparked a controversial debate in the media and politics. To promote a more evidence-based discussion, we have invited one of the leading re- searchers in this field, Professor Alice Eagly from Northwestern University, Evanston, USA, who is currently the Metro Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin. Professor Eagly has led research on gender and leadership for more than 20 years and has published over a hundred ar- ticles in top academic journals and seven books on leadership and other social psy- chological topics. She is a leading expert in this domain and an inspiring speaker. In her presentation she will provide an up-to-date overview of the available evidence.
