WOMEN FOR THE FUTURE: a year-round program of activities for developing women’s potential
What would you say if a talented painter was offered to play the violin instead of a canvas and paints or an IT enthusiast was asked to write advertising texts? You would definitely call it an untapped talent. It is already clear today that in order for a company to succeed in the future, it first of all needs to have employees (many companies today cannot find them at all), with new skills and talents that the times bring. We probably won’t surprise you, especially if you already have D&I in your company’s DNA, that WOMEN are the way to achieve it.
Surveys point to the ever-increasing importance, but especially the contribution, of women on the labor market. According to Grant Thornton’s 2022 Women in Business report, the global representation of women is at the level of 32% of senior management positions, and this figure also confirms how the measurement of D&I has been transferred to ESG indicators. ESG is a topic that we will intensively focus on in our Chamber starting in the fall in order to help our members on their way to fulfilling ESG goals. That’s why today we present to you WOMEN FOR THE FUTURE – a year-round program for developing the potential of women, current and future female leaders in your companies, in a community that connects and supports women across different sectors and industries.
WHO IS WOMEN FOR THE FUTURE FOR?
For those who believe in the potential of diversity. There are no industry boundaries – whether it is services, trade or manufacturing companies, the potential of women can be used in all areas. We want to bring inspiration:
