Women are often appointed as leaders when an organization is in crisis, and in many cases, they’re not given the support needed to turn things around—a phenomenon known as the glass cliff. So are women leaders being set up to fail?

In this live edition of the Chicago Booth Review Podcast, recorded in front of an audience on the University of Chicago campus, Purdue University’s Thekla Morgenroth, Chicago Booth’s Alyssa Rapp, and Heather Spilsbury of 50/50 Women on Boards discuss the causes of the glass cliff and give women leaders advice on how to avoid it.
