Tiffani Lennon

Tiffani Lennon, author of the new book “Recognizing Women’s Leadership” joins Enterprise Radio. Tiffani teaches in the Law and Society Program at Colorado Women’s College of the University of Denver.

Listen to interview with host Eric Dye & guest Tiffani Lennon discuss the following:

  • In your book Recognizing Women’s Leadership you uncovered proof that women are outperforming men—yet their salaries are lagging behind men. Why is this happening?
  • You say in the book that “The valuable contributions that women make to stimulating economic progress, providing innovative solutions to existing problems, and capitalizing on new opportunities need to be recognized while myths surrounding  women entrepreneurs need to be debunked.”  What are some of those myths?
  • What are the differences between women’s leadership roles in the corporate world versus small business or in startups?
  • You write in the book, “Thousands of entrepreneurs launch businesses each year, and many do not succeed. Women are far less likely to receive venture capital investments, lead venture capital firms, or be among the top investors.” Why is this the case?
  • What can women entrepreneurs do to help better their chances for success either in terms of raising capital or going it alone?
