Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard in Conversation with Ambassador Melanne Verveer: Lessons from Women Leaders

Julia Gillard and Melanne Verveer
Women and Leadership

Join former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard for an eye-opening conversation about power, sexism, and the rise of women leaders on the world stage.

In a series of interviews with some of the world’s most powerful and fascinating women, Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s new book Women and Leadership confronts the obstacles that women leaders face at every level of society—from witnessing male colleagues steal their ideas in office conference rooms to being slandered in international media. Hear Gillard’s candid firsthand account of the sexism she witnessed as Australia’s first female Prime Minister, the lessons she’s learned from her conversations with leaders like Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jacinda Ardern, and how we can all play a part in the global struggle for gender equality.
