Majewski spoke with Providence Business News about the Oct. 12 panel discussion co-hosted by WIL Nexus and Tech Collective to examine the topic of “Redefining Leadership” for the modern workplace.

PBN: How did the concept of “Redefining Leadership” go from a Q&A series on the WIL Nexus blog to a panel event co-hosted with Tech Collective?

MAJEWSKI: Though we’ve seen great advancements in school of thought surrounding leadership – from the erosion of hierarchy at a number of forward-facing companies to a greater awareness that leadership moves up, down, diagonals and sideways – we still have a way to go. For the past year, the WIL Nexus has been bringing attention to why we need to redefine leadership through a recurring blog series that profiles local, trailblazing women with their own unique stories and definitions of leadership. But I knew it was imperative to continue this dialogue in person, too.

WIL Nexus and Tech Collective partnered to co-host a panel discussion on this topic, inviting women who embody the characteristics of a next-gen leader to sit on the panel. I am incredibly humbled and inspired by the more than 50 local women who came out. It shows that we are creating the right forums to unite women around this topic.
