How to Empower Women in the Workplace: Be True to Your Values and Purpose

Catherine Rey | November 26, 2019

From navigating personal change in the workplace with empathy, to working on your leadership skills and owning your mindset, impressive women share their journeys at the Forbes Women's Summit. By Catherine Rey The Forbes Women’s Summit which took place in September in Zurich was a wonderful get-together of some really impressive women. My favorite moment of the summit was the moving speech from Bâloise CEO Angela Matthes. She spoke about her own transition and how change is not something you do for yourself and it is also of high impact for the people around you, people you work with. You may have prepared yourself for many years, ho...

Women-Led Businesses: Getting the Female Founders’ Perspective

Dr. Nicole Rosenkranz and Dr. Sowon Kim | October 10, 2019

By Dr. Nicole Rosenkranz and Dr. Sowon Kim How does a woman do business in a male-dominated context? Three female CEOs share their perspectives on gender-bias for entrepreneurs and how to overcome it. June 14, 2019, the second Grève de la femme (women’s strike) in Swiss history took place after the first 28 years ago. Over half a million women took to the streets in protest of gender inequality. Unfortunately, the world today still shows a large gap in the appreciation of both genders in the business world and beyond. Currently, 35.3% of entrepreneurs are women (FSO, 2016) and 31% of SMEs are led by women (USAM, 2017) in Switzerland....

Women in Hospitality: The Balancing Act

Dr Sowon Kim | March 11, 2019

Dr Sowon Kim The conflict generated from managing work and family is real. For half a century, the primary focus of research on this topic was driven by this potential conflict. Still today, female leaders reveal what seems to be a trade-off between career and children. One of the most powerful women in the world - former CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi - shared and advised when stepping down as CEO from PepsiCo last October: I've been blessed with an amazing career, but if I'm being honest, there have been moments I wish I'd spent more time with my children and family. Make the most of your days and make space for the loved one...

Hospitality Financial Leadership – Business Acumen and Women

David Lund | June 11, 2018

By David Lund I may have caught your attention with this potentially explosive title, so I hope you will read this and either help change this inside your hospitality business or personally get your hospitality business acumen on, whether you're a woman or not. In my experience in the last 35+ years I know three things are true about women and business acumen. By the way, I think the word "acumen" is the wrong word simply because it has the word men in it. To my way of thinking it is a non-starter right out of the gate because it sounds sexist. To me the words to describe any manager who has their stick together with the numbers side of...

Women in Leadership: A Rallying Cry

Dr. Sowon Kim | February 19, 2018

By Dr. Sowon Kim The financial services sector has finally begun shedding light on the gender pay gap within the industry, with Citi becoming the first major Wall Street bank to disclose internal data – albeit somewhat selectively – on gender pay, following activist shareholder pressure. The Financial Times (FT) reported earlier this month that, in a message to staff, Citi's head of human resources put the gender pay gap in the US, UK and Germany at just one percent. However, according to the FT's own research, while women account for up to 51 percent of Citi's global workforce, they make up only 42 percent of mid-level exec...
