WE Lead Food

 

Round Table: "Inspiring leadership and innovation in food"

 

WE Lead Food is organizing the online round table "Inspiring leadership and innovation in food" on Friday, 6th of November from 15:00 to 17:00 CET. We would like to invite students and young women to join us and get inspired by our panelists, outstanding women leaders:

 

  • Gabriela Chang (Mexico / Spain) - CSO and co-founder of EthicHub
  • Carla Tanas (Greece) - Co-founder and managing partner of Industry Disruptors-Game Changers. CEO at Future Agro Challenge
  • Marina Gomariz (Spain) - Press Officer at the European Parliament Office in Spain and Project Leader of #DóndeEstánEllas
  • Maitane Alonso (Spain) - Researcher, Medicine student, Founder at Innovating Alimentary Machines
  • (Moderator) Carmen Fernández-Montraveta - Director of Gender Equality at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

 

This event will kickstart the Leadership for Impact Module of the WE Lead Food Programme. The EIT Food WE Lead programme is aimed at women in the agrifood industry. The programme is lead by the University of Cambridge and developed in collaboration with IMDEA Food Institute, Universidad Autónoma of Madrid, EUFIC, Aarhus University, PepsiCo and EIT Rising Food Stars.

WE Lead Food is a programme and a network of women leaders who wish to drive change, innovation, sustainability and resilience within the food sector. This program provides participants with a set of entrepreneurial and leadership tools to address systemic issues and design a plan to drive positive change.

This online programme is developed entirely in English. It runs throughout the months of October and November and consists of two modules: Entrepreneurship for Sustainability and Leadership for Impact.


 

Why is this initiative necessary?

 

Women continue to be under-represented in leadership positions within academia, large corporations and start-up companies. Their representation in the world of science and technology is discouraging, with only 7% of women technology entrepreneurs in European countries. The reasons are many and complex, but one important reason is that women often do not feel that business leadership is for them.

 

Get inspired!

 

You will have the opportunity to listen to the professional and vital trajectory of the different speakers. Find out about their journey: the challenges as a woman they have faced, the difficulties they have encountered and how they have resolved them, as well as the positive experiences that have cemented their career and that can motivate you to undertake a path of leadership.

Besides, you will be able to participate and interact with all the speakers. We want this session to be an open forum where attendees have the opportunity to actively participate and ask questions.

 

Are you up for a challenge?

 

During the round table, our speakers will be sharing their leadership journeys in food, sustainability, and innovation. Get inspired, learn, be curious and then share your experience with us. Send us a postcard!

The design of your postcard will be up to you. Feel free to use drawings, images, collages, videos, words, songs or anything else you might want.

Email us your postcard by the 9th November, 11pm CET for a chance to win a goody bag and a mentoring session with an inspiring women leader of your choice.

 

A chance to connect with like-minded women

 

Online networking, 17-18h

This is a chance to meet, share stories and connect with other like-minded women. Bring a drink and join one of the different groups we are organising, so you can network with other attendees, speakers and WE Lead Food programme participants.

If you are a student or young women, do not miss the opportunity to join "Inspiring leadership and innovation in food"!

 

This event is managed by Fundación Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
