Growth & career thinking for female leaders

Do you want to grow your career without compromising your personal life?

Diversity – including on the grounds of gender – is a real issue in the Belgian creative industry. Men are twice as likely to be in a senior role as women. Without role models and bias in progression structures, this has a huge impact on women’s careers. Women are not progressing to leadership roles and this is seen as the norm in the industry.

It’s important to challenge this to address a lack of representation of women and female creativity. Awareness and actions needs to happen immediately (quoted in report by Creative Belgium.) It’s thé moment to turn good intentions into concrete visible, measurable support and actions. This is not about fixing a problem, it’s all about potential. There are things that can be done at the level of women, men, teams, organisations and society. Because like Belinda Gates says: when you help lift up women, you help lift humanity. This class gives insights, tactics and a roadmap for female talents. It inspires and challenges them to help lift spirits and create a movement that in the end moves society – via the creative industry – forward.

Why should I attend…

Times are changing and female empowerment is a reality.

But it is not a 1 size fit for all. We all are unique and have our individual personalities. Your gender doesn’t define who you are or what we can do. Here are some science-and experience backed tactics to lift your spirits, sharpen your mind and put some focus back on yourself as a female leader. Because we firmly believe that you as an individual female have underleveraged talents. This will do wonders to boost the creative industry because we are all facing renewal and reshaping the agency of the future.
