IESE Women in Leadership (I-WiL)
Because women leaders benefit companies and society
The IESE Women in Leadership (I-WiL) network brings together women leaders of all ages and career stages in order to increase diversity in companies and develop leadership of women as engines of positive social change all over the world. It is an initiative of the Carmina Roca and Rafael Pich-Aguilera Women and Leadership Chair, held by Prof. Nuria Chinchilla.
The network organizes specific events, such as breakfasts with inspiring women executives and networking lunches, and carries out research on female leadership and its impact in companies, sharing the results with governments and organizations.
The main goals of I-WiL are:
- To strengthen the presence of women in Boards of Directors and at all management levels in companies.
- Link the development of female talent with the strategy and culture of organizations.
- Encourage a change of mentality among leaders, in corporate cultures and in organizational practices.
I-WiL organizes forums, workshops and other events in order to share experiences and provide women with additional opportunities for personal and professional development. These activities connect thousands of women across the world every year.
