Leadership Summit Session 3 | Sheryl WuDunn

Sheryl WuDunn continued session 3 of the  Willow Creek Leadership Summit with a talk titled “Half the Sky: Leadership in the Face of Oppression.”

Sheryl WuDunn is the Senior Managing Director of Mid-Market Securities and President of Triple Edge, two social investment and consulting firms specializing in companies run by women.

She is also the author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide and China Wakes: The Struggle for the Soul of a Rising Power

Here are some highlights I grabbed from her talk:

  • The central moral challenge of this century is gender inequity.
    • Too many girls are forgotten in our world.
    • In our world, it isn’t your IQ that decides how far you go, it is your gender.
  • There are 60 – 100 million missing women in the world.
  • The most effective, practical way to raise the livelihood around the world is to educate women and bring them into the workforce.
  • Women and girls are part of the solution, not the problem.
  • The top issue against women in our world is sex trafficking.

What was your biggest takeaway from this session?
