Why Women Leaders Matter
Roboticist Ayanna Howard says diversity of thought makes companies better.
AYANNA HOWARD: They have studies out that show that women led companies have higher outcome measures, in terms of stocks, in terms of employee satisfaction. And I think it's because you lead and you run companies and labs based on your experience. That's all you have to offer.
And because a woman, a senior woman, who's in a form of leadership, their experience is going to be different than, say, a young woman of today. That experience leads them to think about people a little bit differently, think about culture a little bit differently, even putting together a strategic plan, a little bit differently. And something about that diversity of thought, it makes companies produce better.
