‘Building and creating powerful networks’

After our very successful cooperation with Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) last year we are very happy to invite you to the online workshop: Women empowering Women:  Building and creating powerful networks.

Even though women have made progress in moving to higher-level leadership positions in organizations they still face incredible challenges.  This workshop addresses the issues of women in international shipping, particularly the challenges these women face when climbing the corporate ladder. The goal of the on-line workshop is to share experiences, discuss and debate gender balanced leadership, create a sisterhood-posse, and find ways to make Wista The Netherlands visible within the shipping industry.
This highly interactive online workshop invites participants to reflect and debate on their own attitudes towards issues around gender, and examine how they can help address the problem of too little women in top positions, individually and collectively.

Learning outcomes of the workshop:

  • Developed ability to think critically about your attitudes and beliefs about gender.
  • An appreciation of unconscious/implicit bias and how it operates in ourselves, in others, and in organisations
  • Understanding the DNA of Networks
  • An enhanced capacity and enthusiasm for:
    • Making WISTA visible within the shipping industry
    • Amplifying through communication
    • Creating a sisterhood/pose
    • Continuing the debate after the workshop

The WISTA online workshop will be led by Prof. Dianne Bevelander and  Dorothy Grandia of Rotterdam School of Management . They are both well known to those mambers who particpated in the “Woman in leadership program” arranged by Wista last year.
