 8 de Março  2019| Dia Internacional da Mulher

«Neste Dia Internacional da Mulher, elejo um fator fundamental de suporte ao planeamento e desenvolvimento da carreira: o networking. Networking pelo networking vale zero. Deve antes ser visto, a meu ver, como um investimento estruturante, numa perspetiva holística de construção permanente do pensamento, da visão e dos valores, aquisição de competências e diversidade. O networking consiste numa forma de alavancar processos de influência social numa lógica win-win. E é nesse sentido que a PWN Lisbon atua ao nível da dinamização de todos os seus momentos de networking: pequenos-almoços de role model, jantares-debate ou nas mais recentes Conversas do Avesso. Estaremos sempre em condições de fazer mais e melhor, também, se nos aliarmos aos parceiros certos, em cada área. Por isso, na PWN Lisbon temos vindo a celebrar um conjunto de parcerias estratégicas com organizações de relevo em Portugal, cujos colaboradores estão hoje mediante a parceria integrados na rede de membros da PWN Lisbon, beneficiando do ecossistema de eventos de networking, programas e workshops de formação PWN Lisbon. E permitindo, lá está, numa perspetiva win-win, que a própria rede da PWN Lisbon se diversifique, enriqueça e alargue o seu discurso.»

Freeing Women – and Men – From Gender Stereotypes

In the corporate world, gender balance – in representation, roles and opportunities – is steadily moving up the list of organisational priorities. There is a growing desire among top leaders to do the right thing for their female colleagues and younger generations of women, as well as for society at large. Furthermore, the tangible benefits that can arise from getting it right – the “business case” for gender balance – are increasingly recognised.
