Do women want power, or are we ambivalent? Is centuries of conditioning to please and be liked holding us back? And are all women so conflicted, or just some? One hundred years after winning the vote and forty years after the Equal Pay Act, why are there still so few women making their way to the top? Join us for an evening of stimulating debate about how to really move the dial.
