iLIve2Lead girls at DLDwomen
What are the core qualities of leadership? For the girls of the non-profit organization of iLIve2Lead it’s all about (D)reaming big, being (A)authentic, showing (R)resilience and being (E)mpathetic - in one word DARE.
In an interactive workshop, the girls show why they can be considered the pipeline for the next generation of global women leaders. Bright young women between the age of 15 and 22, each share their individual story on how they want to have an impact on their home countries.
Having the digitally driven revolution in Egypt in mind, many of us don’t know about the sacrifices these women had to make in order to change their political situation. Hadeer Adel of Egypt shows a video dedicated to these women, strong and inspiring figures - “I’m a girl, I’m a human being, I’m free.”
“It can be very hard to be ‘a Hadeer’ in Egypt alone - she needs someone to support her!” says iLive2Lead president and founder Laura Bode. Exactly this is what the girls need, support and a network. DLDwomen is already supporting them by bringing them here and introducing them to inspiring female leaders, says Yashasvini Rajeswar of India.
But what else can we all do? How can we establish ‘New Rules, New Values’ in leadership?
Tonight, Julia Beliak, Coralie Malissard and Yashasvini Rajeswar will discuss with Siemens CEO Peter Löscher, Steffi Czerny and Maria Furtwängler-Burda. They will demonstrate how to rock the roles of gender and leadership, live on stage. They’ll ask for instance about the skills needed to lead on a regular day-to-day basis, especially when a smooth organizational restructuring is the goal. Can we learn how to become a great leader? Or is leadership something that we’re born with? And what role does Siemens play in developing future talent?
Expect some tough ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ questions for the CEO of Siemens.
