Female Career Management Workshop

Female leaders are still a rare species. To change that, companies and individuals must better understand what business women really need and which struggles they face on their path.

But does career equals leadership? In this session hosted by Kim Dede we find out why “career” is for every woman and how she can (and should!) manage it.

What does career mean to me? How can I actively manage it? It doesn‘t matter if you love your current role and just want to make the best out of it, crave for more work-life-balance, want to change your job or join the workforce after some time off. This workshop is for you when you finally want to get in the driver’s seat of your career or help other women do so as a HR professional.

PwC: Empowerment in your career

Last week I was invited as a speaker at the #Diversity & #Inclusion Conversations 2022 of the #PwC International Associates Network🤗

As a diversity and #femaleempowerment enthusiast I loved the setting and the topics.✨

Besides my breakout session we talked about #unconsciousbias about LGBTQIA+, sustainability topics, bias in digital assets and the experience of Thomas Miebach as a deaf colleague at PwC.

✅ If you are curious what my session on #empowerment was all about, check out the slideshow in the link.
All you need is some time, a piece of paper and a pen to reflect on your #career and your personal empowerment factors.

This keynote was presented in 2022 for the PwC network.

PwC: Visibility & Personal Branding on LinkedIn

„In nur 10 Minuten pro Tag LinkedIn-Profi werden“ 😎 - das war unsere These am Freitag, als Laura Detels und ich unseren Kolleg:innen von PwC Deutschland unsere besten Tipps & Tricks rund um #LinkedIn weitergegeben haben 🙌

Neben den Basics zur Profilerstellung und -optimierung konnten wir drei wichtige Punkte mit den auf Weg geben:

✔️ LinkedIn hilft dir dabei, sichtbar zu werden als Expert:in, Consultant, Ansprechpartner:in für ein bestimmtes Thema oder genau das, was du draus machst!

✔️ Profiloptimierung kann auch in kleinen Schritten erfolgen: Konzentriere dich zuerst auf das obere Drittel des Profils, da schon ab der Berufserfahrung nur noch die wenigsten Visitor weiterscrollen.

✔️ Zeig deine Persönlichkeit und deinen individuellen Karriereweg statt nur Branchenzahlen oder Unternehmensreposts zu veröffentlichen. Menschen lieben #Storytelling - auch und gerade auf einer Business-Plattform.

Dieser Vortrag war eine interne Keynote für PwC im Jahr 2022.

MentorMe: Karrieremanagement für Frauen

"Wenn man nicht weiß, wo man hin will, sollte man sich nicht wundern, wo man rauskommt." 😨

Aktives Karrieremanagement - ja oder nein?

Ich persönlich würde immer für ein 'Ja' plädieren und teile auch gerne, warum...

🚀 Wir verbringen so viel Zeit unseres Lebens mit der Arbeit und sie hat einen entscheidenden Einfluss auf uns. Warum also alles dem Zufall überlassen?

🚀 #Karriere-Management klingt nach CEO und 60-Stunden-Woche. Aber was, wenn man sich andere Ziele setzt und die aktiv vorantreibt wie beispielsweise eine 4-Tage-Woche, menschenzentrierte Führung oder Raum für Hobbies?

🚀 Jede:r kann das: Ein Netzwerk aus tollen Menschen aufbauen, sich Vorbilder suchen, Unterstützung holen und an der eigenen Selbstsicherheit und #Motivation arbeiten. Wie wäre es beispielsweise mit einer Confidence-Playlist oder Mentoring? 🎶

Das eigene Karrieremanagement ist gar nicht so schwer. Online gibt es viele Vorlagen für die Erarbeitung einer #Vision oder dem Weg, seiner Freude zu folgen #FolgederFreude. Wer dabei Hilfe braucht: Ich biete das auch im #Coaching an 😊

Um abschließend Lea-Sophie Cramers Lieblingszitat zu Chancen und Karriere wiederholen: What if I fall? But Oh Darling, what if you fly? ✨🤩

Diesen Vortrag habe ich 2022 für die MentorMe-Consulting-Community gehalten.

Hochschule Baden-Württemberg: Diversity Marketing

👩‍🎓 Was ist eigentlich #Diversity #Marketing?

Darüber habe ich gestern an der Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg einen Vortrag gehalten.

Natürlich gibt es viele Blickwinkel auf das Thema, aber ich habe vor allem die Diversität in digitalen Werbeanzeigen beleuchtet 💡 Hier steckt so viel Potenzial und auch ein gesellschaftlicher Auftrag, die Welt vielfältiger zu machen und realistisch abzubilden. Gleichzeitig ist enorm viel Fingerspitzengefühl gefragt angesichts des Risikos von unpassender Darstellung oder Stereotypisierung ☝️

Dieser Vortrag wurde 2020 gehalten.
