My First Post-Master Confernce@IE

unknown.jpg
I have been an IE student for over one year, but to be honest I hardly know any confernce going on inside IE until very recently when I started my internship in IE campus. Well here is the first conference I attended called “Leading for the Future”, which was an international workshop co-organized by IWE (International Women of Excellence) and IE.
The idea of the workshop is ¨to help women maximize both of their individual and career potential by sharing successful experiences from others and building on positive experiences; meanwhile, to help organizations attract and retain women talents by creating flexible working environment for them.” as said by Brian Hadfield, Chairman of IWE.
Well if you think carefully about it, this women issue is getting more important among all corporate stuff. But the problem is—–
despite the fact that women are gaining more important positions in the corporate world due to their contribution to facilitating the organization’s capacity to innovate, more women are leaving their organizations due to issues such as inhospitable corporate culture, lack of visibility in the organization, commitment to personal life or family responsibilities.
So what can we do?
(Yes, I was also participating the workshop, and surprisingly the result turned out that many of us rarely do any self development planning regarding social networking with peer business women, or seeking ways of dealing with a male dominated business world, etc., even if we´ve already been in middle management level.)

European Energy Challenge

Well this meeting European Energy Challenge was initiated by IE Business School in homage to the former Vice-President of the European Commission, Ms. Loyola de Palacio, who had cancer and passed away not long time ago. Loyola actually is sister of one of the board members of school, well, I guess that’s the very important part for us to hold this event. Anyway the event was quite influential, apart from Spanish national media, about 22 international media participated the event, among those are Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News, Reuters, Dow Jones, CNN International, etc. Just give you some idea, here are pictures from an amateur’s perspective.
