Recognizing Women Community Leaders on a Global Scale
GRI Faculty Affiliate Patty Goodman has recently co-edited the book, Women Community Leaders and Their Impact as Global Changemakers, published by ICI Global and to be released in March 2022. In this book, the co-editors describe their grounded theory related to leadership and cultural transformation based on 60 stories of female leaders from around the globe. The book also includes over 50 focused stories or chapters illustrating how the incredible change agents have influenced the authors’ environments (also the data collection for the research). The amazing contributing authors offer a view into the leader’s journey and insights into their impact.
In order to celebrate and share this new book, the co-editors have created a group intended to celebrate the influence that women leaders are making in their communities. The co-editors have scheduled several virtual sessions around the world during International Women’s Day week, providing a safe and brave environment for learning and lifting up voices in a positive way.
The initial launch discussion event will be held in honor of Women’s History Month on March 7th at 7 pm ET.
