#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.
