Join an exciting, interdisciplinary peer group for female leaders, where we focus on sharp dialogues, new insights and competent sparring. 

As a part of a team of female leaders, who matches your level, you will create a solid foundation for continuous development – both personal and professional. We dive into both barriers and challenges, you as a female leader might face in the world of business. But at the same time, we study those strengths and abilities of women, that can create great value for the female leader.    

All this happens through exiting group meetings, where you´ll have the opportunity to share your thoughts, concerns and ideas and achieve valuable feedback from others, who share the same professional reality as you. 

Diversity

A unique network

What makes the peer groups for female leaders so unique, is the recognition, understanding and respect, the members share. The fact, that all of you are female leader, quickly creates a room full of trust, where you understand each other and can let your guards down. In everyday life, there is plenty of challenges, therefore it is nice to have a safe space, where you don´t need to explain your actions, and where you can ask for insight and sparring on whatever, you like.

Even though the group consists solely of women, the diversity is still there. Diversity is not only about gender, In the same group, you´ll find both women from the private- and the public sector, women from different types of companies, women with different educations and backgrounds, women of different nationality, extrovert and introvert women and women for different generations. This diversity ensures, that the whole spectrum can be used, when sharing knowledge. During sparring sessions, concrete problems are being analyzed by the members from their distinctive perspectives.

A COMMUNITY OF PROFESSIONALS

Your leadership network

The network brings together female leaders with personnel-responsibility on both strategic and operational level. This includes titles such as managers, head of, C-level, department managers, team leaders, owner managers and more.

We have groups for women from medium-sized companies and large corporations

The peer groups for female leaders are both for you, who wishes to climb the ladder, but it is also for you, who wants to expand your skills, on the level you are at now. The only essential part is, that you are passionate about your leadership and ready to share. When you do that, you will discover, how there´s room for successes, mistakes and vulnerability. No matter your position, you are going to have something to contribute with. And it is precisely, when you – as a part of a community – dare to share your successes and experiences, that magic happens.

Sparring

Collaboration

All members have the opportunity to share and get help on exactly those challenges, they face at work. In collaboration you´ll work on gaining more insight to the challenge, before you´ll start giving and receiving advise, on what to take back to your organization. As a follow up you are going to evaluate on how well, you´ve succeeded at implementing your new solutions at work. The peer group meetings take place in a confidential space, where you safely can share, whatever you feel like. You´ll find, that the group has a sympathetic and supporting approach, but that it also pushes you forward through new insight and perspectives.
