Women hold more positions of leadership than ever before. In 2019, Finland’s Sanna Marin was sworn in as prime minister as part of an all-women coalition. This year, Kamala Harris became the first female, first black and first Asian-American US vice-president. Jacinda Ardern, who has been leading New Zealand since 2017, has been lauded for her leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite this, many studies on the state of women in leadership reinforce something many of us already know.
