Why the Sustainability Leadership Pipeline Begins with Women
Listen to intuition more than your brain about when to change jobs or how to develop your career path.
By Andrea Learned
If ever there were a reason to keep an eye on the corporate leadership pipeline, the sustainable business movement is it.
A recent Spheres of Influence conversation hosted by leadership coach Sarah Warren, PhD., looked at just this topic with the help of two women who shared their own career paths in sustainability. What emerged from the hour-long discussion was a better understanding of how women can make their way toward sustainability-oriented careers and how we can encourage both women and men to strengthen – and balance – communications skills as well as science and engineering skills.
Another key point: women must become deliberate about influencing others to join the sustainable business movement.
