Encouraging Women to make a difference by taking over leadership and responsibility
How to encourage women to take over leadership and responsibility was the subject of the workshop Leadership & Lifelong Learning at the BPW International Congress in Cairo on 25th October 2017 lead by Sabine Schmelzer, member of the Taskforce. She presented to a large group of interested participants the Taskforce’s most successful training projects. And through those projects indeed the leadership skills for women have been fruitfully transferred to several European countries.
The Personal Empowerment Program, PEP, is the basic training for empowering BPW and non-BPW members all over the globe; whereas the PEP Train-the-Trainer-Program - for BPW members only -qualifies trainers to hold the PEP trainings, each trainer receives after the successful examinee the PEP Training Certification.
Another training is created to deepen leadership skills for women on a more personal and corporate structure level. Eight members of the Taskforce developed an intensive “BPW Leadership Training for Women”, which has been already conducted in some European countries e.g. Switzerland, Germany, Estonia.
Johanna Marius originally from Germany living in Egypt and Dahlia Salem living in Cairo presented their project “Culture Smart” to facilitate communication across cultures through self-awareness, knowledge and practice. They took the group to an astonishing practical example, which showed the importance of intercultural skills in a globalized world.
