Women, Alumni, ELP

View in browser

Hi folks!

Every girl and woman should be able to live safely, self-determined and independent. To shape a gender equal world we need to embrace equity and raise awareness about discrimination - not only on International Women's Day, but every day. 
"Celebrating women's achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is key."

In this regard, we are beyond proud to see what our female ELP alumni have achieved so far! From ecological noise barriers, over a financial education app, to a women empowerment platform, sustainable period products, and more - you girls rock, and shine!

This week there are even special news from our alumni Sofia Surma and Marlene FrauscherVulva Shop becomes Empovver. With the rebranding, the focus is now on community building and positioning itself as a go-to resource for feminists and entrepreneurs. 

Got inspired by all the entrepreneurial endeavours? You might have heard it before - our Entrepreneurial Leadership Program is here to support you on the way!

Cheers to the ladies & happy weekend!

Fortifying Female Entrepreneurship: The Key Assets That Make Women Excellent Leaders

“Unfortunately, this day is somewhat shrouded by the fact that women of today still struggle to get their fair share in the business world. This is exemplified by female entrepreneurs only constituting about 8% of the women in the active labor force in the EU and is further exacerbated by the paltry piece of the funding pie that females get. Startups founded by women raised only 1.8% of investment in Europe compared to 89% being raised by male founding team. This only makes the women who have managed to wade through the patriarchy all the more impressive, however.”

Celebrating Female Innovators

"Replace impostor syndrome with growth mindset: Studies show that innovators, particularly women, often experience imposter syndrome, or feelings of inadequacy that manifest as self-doubt or self-perception of being a fraud. WTW’s Paige Seaborn writes how effective leaders

work to change the way colleagues think about self-doubt – seeing that it is part of a growth mindset, with an attitude of I don’t know what I’m doing yet but it’s only a matter of time until I figure it out."
