I was privileged to be part of a panel discussion in the lead up to International Women’s Day 2023 exploring ‘Closing the Gap

Women in leadership – a wicked problem and an immeasurable opportunity
Posted on January 17, 2021 1 Comment
A wicked problem can be described as having “innumerable causes, is tough to describe, and doesn’t have a right answer”. (Strategy as a wicked problem, HBR).
