IT is no secret that women historically faced greater barriers than men did when it came to fully occupying strategic and high positions in the work place, not just nationally but regionally and internationally. For the past two decades there has been a clamour suggesting that we need more women in leadership roles. However, Trinidad and Tobago should be seen as a leader in this area since countless women have given sterling service in building this country.
I have always refused to believe that leadership is an esoteric quality. I liken leadership to a small seed that needs water to germinate: leadership qualities are “watered” through experience, education and action.
