In a special interview, ‘Leading Women’ CNN has unique access to IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde in Washington DC, Peru and Chile. Lagarde talks to CNN anchor Gabriela Frias about why women can lead an organisation through a crisis; using her role on the world stage to change the global workforce; why she doesn’t want to be President of France and how she is coping with the ongoing political fraud case.
Lagarde is considered one of the world’s most powerful women. Forbes placed her in 5th position in their 2014 list for the most powerful women in the world. A woman of many firsts, Lagarde was the first woman to chair the global law firm Baker and McKenzie, the first female finance minister of France and the first woman to lead the IMF.
She talks to ‘Leading Women’ about the significance of being the first female leader of the IMF: “That’s the reason why I think I want to do a good job, because I don’t want to let my female colleagues around the globe down. I don’t want them to turn around to me and say, you know, ‘why did you make a mess out of it?’ So I feel an added burden and an added responsibility as a result of that.”
The special will be broadcast on CNN International on Wednesday January 28th at 1130 CET and 1830 CET
