Múltheti, a brit nagykövetséggel és a Hiventures-szel közösen szervezett konferenciánk, a 'Come, See, Succeed - The UK offer for startups' kapcsán írt rólunk a Piac & Profit. Azokat a cégeket, amelyeket érdekelnek a szigetországbeli lehetőségek többféle forrásból is tájékozódhatnak: a nagykövetség és a kamara mellett az Egyesült Királyság nemzetközi kereskedelemfejlesztésért felelős kormányhivatalának, a Department for International Trade (DIT) helyi képviseleténél is. Az akcelerátorok között a szigetországban is kiemelt szerepet játszik a világ számos pontján jelen lévő és húsznál több ipari programot futtató Startupbootcamp, amely eddig 580-nál is több vállalkozásnak nyújtott átlagosan egymillió eurónyi támogatást.
Gender diversity, forced quota for women in leadership, positive discrimination... all hot topics in corporate discussions, debates.
It might be controversial, but I don’t believe in gender quotas, I don’t believe in forced equality. For the mere fact that I believe in equality, as such...
For one happens to be born with a certain set of DNA it is by no means describes that a person is more (or less) able to be successful in a role or be a better leader than the other. Women and men tend to – but not always – hold different qualities, abilities.
We are observed as more emotionally driven, our soft skills work on a wider scale, can be more talkative, engaging and other than collect the essential fruits and veggies to support the tribe’s needs, we operate the quintessential grapevine that holds teams – as big as societies – together.
Men, on the other hand, can often better focus on one single thing, see longer perspectives, weight consequences better, protect and provoke in order to win and by that move forward successfully. They hunt, capture, achieve and compete. A highly recommended good read on the topic is Harari’s Homo Sapiens (and Homo Deus, as well).
So shall we force this or that potential benefit to a society or on an organisation?
