Tall Poppy Podcast Series on Women and Power-  Michelle Ryan: Powerful woman.
They say that women hold up half the sky yet the number of women in positions of leadership doesn’t reflect this. Michelle Ryan is a professor at Exeter University, a researcher, social and organisational psychologist, looking at gender inequality. What does that mean, and what can we do to promote equality? Michelle helps us unpack the reasons for the low numbers of women in leading roles, and impact of stereotyping and imposter syndrome relating to women and power. She helps us see that we’re not alone and can forge ahead with a greater understanding of what creating gender equality means even if it’s hard to describe. What does it look like today and ideally? Will it happen in our lifetime? Why do people hate the word feminism? Is Australia more sexist than the UK? Listen up to find out.
