WBN wants to make a positive impact on society by breaking down barriers that might hinder talented female students from reaching their full potential. To reach our mission of gender equality, we focus on three main pillars:
WBN seeks to create a platform for its members to build a strong network that can be a valuable asset once they start their professional careers. Furthermore, through events organised together with companies, we promote ambitious women to succeed in the business world.
If we cannot look up and see women who have been successful in certain industries or roles, it becomes harder to see ourselves reaching those positions. Moreover, gender disparity in leadership roles remains largely unchanged and various stereotype biases keep undermining women’s leadership aspirations. Therefore, WBN wants to bring forward female leaders and inspiring women from different industries to provide role models that female students can relate to, and who can encourage our members to reach out for leadership positions.
The existence of the gender gap has long been an undisputed fact but too little progress has been made to properly address it. We at WBN truly believe that if we can engage a larger audience in the discussion on diversity and inclusion, we can also come up with better solutions to tackle the problems regarding gender inequality. Therefore, WBN wants to engage all the students at EUR in this discussion so that we can achieve the best possible solutions and create new opportunities together.
