Why we need to keep talking about gender and leadership

Why we need to keep talking about gender and leadership
Description
In 1987, like generations of NHS graduate management trainees, I made my way to Harrogate for the 2-day assessment centre which determined which bright-eyed and bushy-tailed graduates were to be admitted to the national scheme. I can still recall how surprised and impressed I was that the final appointments panel was chaired by a woman chief executive, and that she took time during the interview to talk to me about the NHS' opportunities and support for women managers.

FIFA offers a surprise lesson on how to reform post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina

FIFA offers a surprise lesson on how to reform post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina
Description
Written by Dr Laurence Cooley. Bosnia and Herzegovina recently held its seventh general election since the end of the 1992-1995 war – a conflict that left more than 100,000 dead. On the face of it, the obvious victors of these elections appear to be the country's dominant nationalist parties, which have held power for almost two decades.
