History, Female Leadership and Happiness (Part 1) with Wendelijn van der Leest

History, Female Leadership and Happiness with Roxanne Derhodge and Wendelijn van der Leest

Quote: “We have a legacy of thought leaders actually thinking about issues like this, so we don’t need to invent the wheel all over again.” Wendelijn van der Leest

This was such a great interview packed with so much interesting information that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. Be sure to tune in again next week for part II.

History books are full of facts and stories about men that have been written since the beginning of time, but what about their female counterparts? It has only been in the last few decades that much research has been done to showcase women in ancient history. To help bring some of their stories to light and discover their amazing accomplishments, we’re thrilled to welcome Historian and Female Leadership Expert Wendelijn van der Leest to share some of her knowledge about women in history and how they have paved the way for current female leaders.

Wendelijns motto: I am committed to history. Not just for what it reveals about the past, but for what it reveals about me, my community, my nation and the world at large. History is a tool to help us into the future.”
