The new field of social entrepreneurship is ideally suited to women, who have always had to meet complex demands that pit community against individualism...

Level343's curator insight, December 3, 2014 11:22 AM

The question is, why are we finding so many women in this field – and are they really capable of leading the charge? 

 

 

An alignment between women in leadership and women as consumers has been underway for some time. We’re no longer a niche market, and that change is reflected in evolving occupational roles as well — think Sheryl Sandberg. Meanwhile, our evolution as players in social entrepreneurship can be traced to the not-so-distant past. Women always worked in social occupations (teachers, nurses, mothers), but the more ambitious women of the Mad Men-era emerged as leaders in community societies and volunteer organizations.
