“I think a world where half of our countries and our companies were run by women, would be a better world.“– Sheryl Sandberg COO Facebook in 2010
A CASE FOR GENDER DIVERSITY
It’s 2016 and times are changing in a dazzling speed. Individuality is enhanced as a must for development and social media has changed the way we live and interact. Feminism has been redefined and is about equal chances for everyone and the right to be who you are. It has risen to the level that it is no longer a women’s issue but a more strategic move to explore the diversity in people. Proof of this can be found in the report published by McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) in September 2015 called ‘The power of parity: How advancing women’s equality can add $12 trillion to global growth’.
The biggest challenge for business managers in this economic phase is how to achieve interactivity and personal connections for their companies. They want their companies to offer genuine dialogue, transparency, clear values and collaboration. There’s only one type of manager who is capable to combine all these skills that lead to economic growth: Leading women in business make the difference!
“We need societies that recognise diversity as a source of strength.“– Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (World Economic *Forum, Davos)
A TWO-DAY EVENT
In March 2016 the Leading Women in Business (LWIB) Corporation based in Amsterdam will kick off a trendsetting campaign to show the world what leading women are capable of. The goal is to show how workforce diversity has to be implemented in business strategies to achieve bigger financial results. The highlight of this campaign will be a two-day event in 2017. World thought leaders on the women in business topic will join us in the European capital of Diversity Amsterdam. Everyone who wants to empower the changing world has to be there.
