… I have a small (platonic) girl crush on Laura Liswood (co-founder of both the White House Project and the Council of World Women Leaders and a Senior Advisor to Goldman Sachs).
I’ve heard her speak lots of times, I’ve met her a few times, she featured (and was fabulous) in the film, “Closing the Gender Gap”, on which I served as Executive Producer in 2008 and, well, I just happen to think she’s great. She’s smart, funny, makes some great points around the business and social benefits of gender diversity and is a fabulous advocate for women in leadership.
And now she has a new book out, The Loudest Duck, in which she reflects on how the Noah’s Ark approach that many organisations take isn’t working. (“If we could only get two of each in the Ark, we’ll have our diversity.”)
Check out her guest entry over on the Catalyst blog and see what you think.
