You will also have the opportunity to share your experiences and delve deeper into the subject through discussions with fellow participants. The speakers are:

Before joining RSM, she spent two years as a postdoc fellow at the Institute of Management at the Université de Neuchâtel, in Switzerland and has worked for UNESCO in Nepal developing projects to empower Nepalese women and girls. Tina wants to share her experience how the topic of gender has become important in her career.
Amber van Workum
Amber van Workum is a third year IBA student in Rotterdam. Amber organizes the Train the Trainers conferences in the National Trainers Team of AIESEC. While growing up, she was physically and emotionally abused, and consequently has struggled with her mental health for years. But at the same time, these experiences have also shaped her into the person she is today. She realized that by sharing her experiences, she can actually help others as well. So, for this International Women's Day Program, Amber will talk about domestic violence to raise awareness for this issue, which has been increasing due to the current pandemic as well.
Hana Taher is a student International Business Administration at RSM – Erasmus University Rotterdam. She is one of the founders of The Us Space of EUR.
