On a Mission, Episode 7: Dr. Kellie McElhaney

Dr. Kellie McElhaney is the founding director of the Center for Equity, Gender, and Leadership at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. She started her career in banking, which she calls a heavily masculine industry, where women were compelled to exercise leadership in a masculine way. She is fighting the good fight in the corporate world to insist that yes – welcoming different skill sets, different personalities, different genders, and different ethnicities into the board room is not just a nice thing to do, but that it’s in fact good for the bottom line. Something business types like to hear 🙂 She’s the author of a book called Just Good Business.

I think you’ll be intrigued by what she has observed about Imposter Syndrome – and how it affects men and women differently. 


Listen in to get inspired about positive possibilities in the corporate world.
