Is there an audience to whom you would like to explain the business case for gender diversity in leadership, the dynamics of women's career advancement, and strategies for overcoming career barriers and advancing women to leadership roles? My recorded lecture on "Leadership Development of Women Executives" is the free talk of the month at Henry Stewart Talks for the month of April 2014.
In countries with strict gender roles, women's total work hours tend to increase as they perform more paid labor outside the home. In Spain, for example, women's work at home (housework and child care) declined by only 6 hours per week as their workplace labor increased by 8 hours per week from 2002 through 2010, say Jose Ignacio Gimenez-Nadal of the University of Zaragoza in Spain and Almudena Sevilla of Queen Mary University of London in the UK. The result is that Spanish women lost 2 hours of weekly leisure time over that period.
