“Women in leadership: challenges and opportunities” – a BMI Institute’s panel discussion dedicated to International Woman’s day

While overall the numbers remain low, gender equality is increasing. 41 of the companies on the Fortune 500 list currently have female CEOs compared to only 33 in 2019 and 24 in 2018. Furthermore, in the public sector, 2020 has proven to be a strong year with more women elected to high office around the world.

However, the pandemic has intensified some of the challenges women face in the workplace. One in three mothers have considered leaving the workforce or downshifting their careers for reasons relating to the current circumstances (McKinsey report 2020).

BMI Brussels is excited to invite you to an online discussion panel “Women in leadership: challenges and opportunities”. The event will take place on Thursday, March 4th at 12:30 CET (Brussels time), 13:30 Vilnius time via ZOOM. Please, register no later than March 3rd here.

Will the pandemic reverse the positive trends we have seen over the past years? How can we overcome the challenges female leaders are facing? What are the opportunities that could help women climb the ladder or re-enter the labour market after career breaks? These and many more questions will be answered in this BMI Brussels online panel discussion with participants:

Daria Nashat, Co-Founder 'Women in Politics', Gender-balanced leadership, Community-builder, Mother with a vision, Speaker & facilitator.

Florence Bindelle, Secretary General at EuropeanIssuers, LSM alumna.

Algis Davidavičius, sociologist, lecturer at Vytautas Magnus university. 

Disuccion moderator: Steve Neale, executive coach, mindfulness instructor and emotional intelligence practitioner, founder of Limbic Performance System, BMI Institute lecturer.  

The online discussion takes between 1 and 1.15h. The Zoom link, together with the confirmation of your registration, will be sent shortly after registration. We look forward to seeing you online! Feel free to share this invitation with colleagues and partners.
