Event description

Description

Professor Lucia Egea will lead us in a discussion about the professional abilities that women use to succeed in the business world, which make them some of the most effective leaders. While at the same time, more than half of the employees in companies worldwide are female, only 4% serve in roles in the C-Suite. Why aren’t there more? Evidence shows that hard work and excellence are important in women’s professional trajectories, but alone are not enough. In this workshop Professor Egea will elaborate on how she has used teamwork, initiative, result-driven decision making as well as empathy and passion to become a successful professional in the fields of Consulting, Pharma and Telecommunications. She will also highlight the importance of a strong work-life balance and self-confidence as essential ingredients for sucess for professional women.

During this event we will also share more information regarding the #IEWOMEN initiative and the Six Million Euro Scholarship Fund and Mentoring Program that have been launched in order to encourage women to pursue higher education an excel in their professional careers.
