For me, leading means empowering the people around me. When those around me are successful and happy, I eventually benefit from enhanced success myself. Therefore, I gladly accepted Women@HHL’s invitation for the International Women’s Day 2019 gathering to support their mission of empowering the female community at HHL and beyond.

Women@HHL, a network only for women? Absolutely! During my talk given for Women@HHL in Winter 2017, I personally experienced the initiative as bringing together very engaged and passionately discussing women united by a common interest: advancement and going their own way. What particularly defines the discussions among women in my opinion, is clearly perceivable: liveliness, extraordinary openness, and interested, genuine listening. This way, the exchange and the events provided by Women@HHL offer something for everybody!

The initiative women@HHL has been a core element of my studies at HHL. Besides providing a great network of inspiring women in business, the initiative has also allowed me to intensify my internal HHL network. Talks, workshops and trainings promote personal strengths and open up perspectives. This way, I was supported in both my personal development and my professional advancement.
