In November, Julia Gillard, former Prime Minister of Australia, and Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Finance Minister of Nigeria and seventh Director-General of the World Trade Organization, released a TED Talk titled, “6 Essential Lessons for Women Leaders.”
The video has already received more than a million views, and the pair have since released a book about women in leadership. Gillard and Okonjo-Iweala are authorities on women’s paths to power, and their lessons are vital for any woman in the workplace.
We’ll recap their six essential lessons for women leaders, and explain what the data says about each point. (You can watch Gillard’s and Okonjo-Iweala’s full TED Talk here.)
