The latest Women’s Agenda podcast is up and ready for your weekend, and we’re talking about the Glass Cliff.
That’s the phenomenon that sees women appointed to leadership roles when the risk of failure is often at its highest point.
We talk about it particularly in the context of women replacing men in a leadership roles, when the man has been ‘removed’ or ‘resigned’ due to unacceptable behaviour.
We also talk ‘Glass Cliff’ in reference to Georgie’s piece this week, noting that “not even men behaving badly gives women a fair shot at leadership.”
We share some stats and ideas on the phenomenon, and attempt to ask the question: would you take on a new role, if you knew the risks of failure in the position were unacceptably high?
We also discuss books! And the huge pile that’s landed in the office written by Australian women that we can’t wait to get stuck into.
