Spring 2017 has been a busy one for the ESADE Women in Business Club. Our goal has been to raise awareness of gender equality, discuss the challenges women face and appreciate and empower the women around us. In this blog post we’ll talk about a few of the things we organized.
At the start of the year, we hosted a panel of peers to discuss issues on gender equality and challenges women face in the business world. Our Executive VP, Anna Tacconi, had the pleasure of hosting our classmates Rafi Kasmadjian, Anastasiia Kryvulia and Echo Zhang. They shared their views and personal stories followed by a Q&A session from the club members. We discussed some of the challenges women face at the workplace – in an open environment among future leaders – and came up with potential solutions for these issues.
Also, to appreciate and recognize women around us, we provided cards and flowers for sale – students and others could keep these or gift them to their classmates or friends. We celebrated the event with food, music and sunshine!
Stay tuned for our future events and blog posts!
