“Feminist leadership is about embedding equality, inclusion, fairness and justice in every action I take as a leader, using my power, my authority, to ensure that that happens in the organization. It’s also about courage and urgency. We know that to get an equal world we need to change systems, we need to change the status quo, and that will always come with a push back, or naysayers. And therefore it needs courage, and persistency and urgency to constantly be on that journey”.AB Albrectsen, July 2019
