Beyond the genre: The feminine as a competitive factor

Conferencia |

The ESADE Alumni Andorra Chapter are pleased to invite you to their first event of the 2019-20 academic year on 30 October at 19.00. 

What if gender was simply a myth? What if equality was not a male/female issue but a matter of lending a voice to all things feminine? And what are all things feminine?

Today’s world calls for companies to be creative and innovative. They are expected to change. This can only happen if companies have the right conditions to enable talent to grow. And this can only happen when people are at ease, when flexibility, tolerance, collaboration, communication, etc, can find a place where they can express themselves. In other words, when there are “more things feminine”.

Men and women can and must work together to find a new way of responding to current challenges and creating a new world in which the place where people’s talents are developed is the workplace.

Corporate diversity is not merely a fashionable trend but a necessity in order to respond to current challenges.
It is not a matter of having more women in companies, although this does help, but of having “more things feminine”. This is the key to transformation and this talk will address how to move in this direction.
