Women’s workshops

From 2008 to 2010 six ‘empowerment’ workshops were organised in which more than 220 different beta-women participated. Topics were, alternately in Dutch and English: Know what you want; Making yourself visible; Present yourself & your work; Build relationships & negotiation skills; Stratego for women; and Female leadership. The workshops were led by professional experts in these topics. The women received tips and concrete tools for a successful career (profiling yourself well, communicating clearly, taking initiative instead of waiting etc.) and a better insight into the functioning of the work floor (the important role of perceptions, the use of ‘status-symbols’, the importance of public recognition etc.)
