White House Summit: MAKERS Talk Women in Leadership

"If you don't see women in the roles that you aspire to, you assume that they're not really open to you." -Brenda Berkman

As The White House Summit on Working Families approaches, MAKERS spotlights the conversation around the complex relationship women have with power and leadership. From the fear of taking risks to the importance of language around "power," MAKERS like Maria Shriver, Sheryl Sandberg, Pat Mitchell and more share their ideas on how women think about themselves and the treatment they receive as they ascend in their careers.

Issues like lacking confidence and the tension between success and likeability are key for female leaders of today. In this video, MAKERS suggest ways - and words - that can positively change the way society talks about and represents women in roles of leadership.

Watch to hear their thoughts and be inspired. Join the conversation on social media and send your ideas to us @MAKERSwomen.
