The share of female top managers in larger organizations is still low, but some women have reached the top. How has their journey been to get there? What external barriers have they met, and have they dealt with any kind of inner resistance for taking on a demanding, yet exciting top management role?

To celebrate the International Women’s day 8th of March, BI and BISO invite you to a digital event where Tom Colbjørnsen, former President of BI, will present his research about female managers’ ways to the top.

We will also hear from female top managers themselves, what has brought them onwards and upwards?
