visionI invited all seventeen women colleagues in managerial positions in the EESC to lunch to discuss an article entitled ‘Women and the Vision Thing’ that had been published in the Harvard Business Review. This was great fun; a good atmosphere and an excellent discussion from which I learnt a lot. I have nailed my colours to the mast when it comes to getting more women into managerial positions in the Committee. As I told them, whether or not they agree with the article’s argument that women managers are perceived as scoring lower on ‘envisioning’, they should have one vision; that one day one of the women at that lunch will be Secretary General.
