Reflecting on my training, I became even more convinced of the importance of women in leadership positions to drive significant change. Women bring a holistic perspective to crisis management and are capable of expressing diverse opinions in a professional and sensitive manner, which is the key to their success and relative advantage in finding solutions. I hope that my two daughters will read these words as they grow up and realize that nothing can stand in the way of a woman who is determined to shatter the glass ceiling and reach positions of influence.
