About Lesley Symons

The founder of the The Case for Women, Lesley Symons, is passionate about getting more women into leadership positions. Whilst studying at INSEAD in France, Lesley noticed a distinct lack of women on campus, both as professors and as students. Even more noticeable was the lack of case material she read with a woman either as a lead or as a manager. This lead her to writing her thesis 'Where are the Women Leaders?'. Hence, her particular interest is in the business school and tertiary education sector where she found women critically under-represented.
