The Power of Women in Business
On the 8th of March, International Women’s Day, Room for Discussion will host an panel discussion on the power and role of women in business. During this interview, we would like to focus on the key challenges women face during their career and how to overcome them, in order to contribute to celebrating women’s achievements on this important day.
On paper, things have never looked better for female entrepreneurs. But statistical numbers only tell part of the story. Women-owned firms are still in the minority, and the hurdles faced by women who have embraced entrepreneurship are vast and often very different than those experienced by their male counterparts. To shed light on some of these disparities, Room for Discussion organizes a panel discussion with three inspiring business women who will discuss their experiences regarding female entrepreneurship and leadership.
Our first guest is Dr. Cara Antoine. She joined Microsoft the Netherlands in January 2017 as Chief Marketing & Operations Officer. We will also be joined by Ms. Diana van Maasdijk, co-founder & CEO of Equileap, an organisation aiming to accelerate progress towards gender equality in the workplace. Our third and final guest is Ms. Carine de Meyere, Director of Partnerships & New Business Development for TEDxAmsterdamWomen.
