How can equality and diversity be conceptualized and implemented to promote inclusive leadership? What are the main benefits, barriers, and challenges towards inclusive leadership? What is the potential impact of an inclusive leadership?

In this module you will examine the dynamics related to gender, intersectionality and diversity in leadership in the public and private sectors. Research has shown that access to leadership is probably more a “labyrinth” than a simple “glass ceiling”. You will explore the pathways, opportunities and obstacles to an inclusive leadership and the impact of inclusive leadership on policy making and the conduction of public affairs. You are encouraged to link the material to your professional experience.
