Want more women in leadership roles? Recognize their accomplishments


When women’s achievements at work are publicly recognized, it can fuel their desire to lead. 
That’s according to recent research out of the University of Exeter Business School in the U.K. 
In conducting an experiment with university students, Jingnan Chen found that highlighting a woman’s successes greatly increases her willingness to lead, even if the work environment is male-dominated. And when these women lead, their teams have a greater likelihood of performing well, per Science Daily.
