In this conversation Dr Claudelle and Priscillah Mabelane explore the factors that contribute to the challenges women find in leadership and how to break through those barriers. They also touch on the hierarchies created in terms of race and gender and the need for diversity and inclusivity. Priscillah shares deep insights into what both male and female leaders should do to level the playing field for leaders in terms of race and gender and the ethical implications in that context. She gives valuable advice to aspiring leaders and how they can leave a legacy.
It is incumbent on each of us to constantly evaluate whether our moral compass is still pointing to our true north. We need to continually ask ourselves whether our actions are informed by our own beliefs that we carefully considered, before we concluded that they are fit to be used in our moral compass. How certain are we that we are not just believing what we are because those around us believe it? Or, that we are believing what we are because those who we have crowned with a halo believe it? Applying one’s own mind is paramount if we were to avoid the temptation of outsourcing our morality to others.
