Podcast | Rethinking employment

In our bi-weekly interview sessions, we want to learn about new and innovative employment situations. What are alternative ways to find a new job? How can we find more meaning in our work? How can we leverage our strengths and full potential in our jobs? How do companies need to react to adapt to nonlinear careers when recruiting? What are new and flexible approaches in terms of working time and location? Should we even measure working time or is more about the impact we have? We want to discuss those questions with companies, HR people, founders, recruiters or everyone else, that offers new and alternative approaches to those questions. We also want to present people with interesting jobs and people that have created something meaningful within their “standard” jobs. We won’t ask you to quit your job and become self-employed. Because we believe there must also be answer in employment jobs.

#12 | The impact of female leadership on work environments

During the female founders event by WLOUNGE, the panelists of the event answered the question “How will work change once we have more women in leadership positions”:

Nina Jetter (Investment manager at Project A),

Jag Singh (Managing Director at Techstars),

Cilia C. Kanellopoulos (Head of Social Innovation at Vodafone),

Katy Campbell (Head of Brand and Communication at APX),

Mali Baum (CEO of WLOUNGE) and

Karolina Attspodina (CIO of WLOUNGE)

share their voices and their experience with us.

We talk about creating environments where - we have more women at the table and it is more about the person and not such much about the gender - it is not so much about to “fit in” and adapt to a business culture which is male dominated and more women will be able to be themselves, because no one should change their personality in order to become successful.

We learn why more female role models are crucial so younger women can choose the one that fits to them and don’t need to stick to that one example that made it, but also why it should be the new normal to have female leaders, so younger female can see they can get there and how.

Decisions will be made in a more diverse way from different perspectives by bringing more emotional factors and empathy to the table. Our current, very ancient working concepts will need to be rethought, so they fit to the needs of women and especially mothers.

In a world of female leadership or at least a 50:50 split, we would not need to worry about diversity and inclusion anymore and can build better products and solutions instead. By bringing the female perspective in while building products, we make sure to have the voice of the majority of our population being heard and understand this powerful consumer group much better.
