About the event
Dear Lean In’ers, dear Ladies,
We cordially invite you to our first “Femmenex-Connecting beyond the Bubble” event on 2 November 2022 in Bern.
“I think men are socialized from the get-go to understand that mixing business and friendship is what you do [to get ahead]. We, as women, aren’t as comfortable doing that.” Rachel Thomas (Co-President Lean In Foundation)
If networking has worked so well for men, how do we make it work for us? Research suggests women network differently, and in fact there is no shortage of women’s associations. Most are however focused on a specific professional sector. Femmenex wants to bring together women from arts, business, diplomacy&politics, and help shaping meaningful connections beyond (professional) bubbles.
The event will host speakers from Lean In, glp Frauen and other women’s associations to discuss different forms of networking, as well as how to strengthen synergies and ties across networks because in the end we will need a broad alliance to achieve gender equality. The event is free and will be co-hosted by Lean In Switzerland and the women’s network of the green-liberal party. It will take place in English and German.
Looking forward to connecting with you!
on behalf of Lean In Switzerland Network (Bern, Lucerne, Zurich)
