“But when it came to ‘s’ power – the need to have impact driven by altruistic reasons – women were significantly higher in ‘s’ power than men.”
The Winner Effect, Ian Robertson

There are just a few days left to sign up to our exciting Autumn seminar. Hear about how power affects our brains and influences how we make decisions. Explore why women may be better at making decisions for the greater good and how the NfP sector can reach its potential with greater gender diversity at leadership level.

Add your own voice, experience and suggestions on how women can be encouraged and inspired to be leaders in a diverse and thriving Not-for-Profit sector in our discussion after each speaker.

Professor Ian Robertson is a neuroscientist and a trained clinical psychologist. His widely translated books include The Stress Test and the Winner Effect.  In The Winner Effect he looks at how our brains process leadership and power.  Interestingly, he explores how women’s brains can react differently to power and looks at the positive role that women can play in strategic leadership positions and in decision-making.

Women in leadership in the NfP sector is a growing topic of discussion.  It was the focus of a panel discussion at the Fundraising Institute’s (UK) Annual Convention in July this year.  It has been the subject of research and articles in The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, The Guardian and Fundraising Quarterly (USA), to name a few.
