THE EVENT

Evolution: Celebrating Progress and Potential is IESE’s 2nd Annual student run Women in Leadership conference. Through keynote speeches and discussion panels, we hope to create a space in which gender balance issues can be openly discussed, so that present and future business leaders attending the event are inspired to play an active role in the path towards gender equality.

EVOLUTION: CELEBRATING PROGRESS AND POTENTIAL

With this year’s theme, “Evolution: Celebrating Progress and Potential” we want to encourage our delegates to reflect on the success women have seen thus far, and to challenge the issues that women continue to face in the workplace today. Our ultimate goal is to provide delegates with an opportunity to explore a variety of professions, embrace challenges, and embody confidence while pursuing their career goals.
