Global crises and revolutions are demanding a new type of leader. The traditional style of command and control leadership – a heavily masculine one- has caused disastrous consequences, whereas a more empathetic, inclusive form of leadership – a more feminine one- has thrived. Using case studies from the climate movement, the Armenian revolution, and the Chilean protests, this talk introduces a new way to practice power and makes the case for women to lead. Samantha Karlin (she/her/hers) is the founder and Chief
Executive Officer of Empower Global. She consults
organizations on how to better recruit, retain, and
advance women, create male allies, and foster inclusive
environments that enable people from all backgrounds
to thrive. She is currently also advising on Apollo, a
community building app for men.
Her background spans the public and private sectors,
from tech to politics to foreign affairs. Her most recent role was the Director of Global Community at a venture backed tech startup in Silicon Valley, CommonGenius. Before that, Ms. Karlin was the Director of Global Engagement & Gender Equality at Ashoka, where she focused on accelerating Ashoka’s female entrepreneurs. Ms. Karlin speaks around the world and does workshops around gender issues. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
