2011 Topic: From gender diversity to leadership variety

More women in management creates a space for men and women to expand the way they lead. Beyond a gender diversity programme, companies should seek to diversify the range of leadership behaviours and spread good practices within the organisation.

New leadership models and corporate structures need to be developed that are more in tune with the competencies and leadership approaches of the women executives whom companies need to attract and keep if they are to remain competitive. Women were being urged to conform to a mainstream leadership style that was considered a fundamental requirement for anyone who hoped to exert authority in public life. Henceforth female leaders and diversity in leadership create competitive advantage by changing the company culture.

Getting new skills for a changing workplace is a strategic decision!

Come and celebrate with us!

For the landmark 5th edition of the JUMP Forum we have a programme packed with visionary speakers, including Peninah Thomson (author of A Woman’s Place in the Boardroom), Susan Vinnicombe (author of Women with Attitude: Lessons for Career Management), Éléna Fourès (author of Leadership au féminin), Michèle Mees (author of The Balanced Leader : Dynamics to improve the Masculine/Feminine Balance in Business) and Marc Luyckx Ghisi (author of The Knowledge Society: A Breakthrough Toward Genuine Sustainability), as well as educative and inspiring workshops.
