"Shifting the Paradigm: Why We Need Real Women Leaders Now"
As successful actress and entrepreneur, Jess has used her role as a female leader to inspire thousands of young women worldwide. Being taken seriously as a female leader has had its obstacles, and Jess has made many observations along the way. Jess has identified that, in so many ways, it's still a man's world - and in order to succeed, many women are taught that they must "play the game." They must adhere to societal constraints to mask their femininity rather than own their feminine power. Jess explains that being a female leader isn't "cute" but instead presents a massive opportunity and is often more collaborative than male leadership too. Jess wants to change the game and make the world a better place. In this talk, Jess helps explain how we can all do this together.
