Brussels Women Code Festival
Creating Impact Leadership in STEAM:
PWI STEAM Programme
The PWI STEAM Programme offers support to STEAM women in their career progression within the sectors of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics.
We warmly invite you to our upcoming event, Building Sustainable Leadership, on October 15, 2019 at the premises of BeCentral in Brussels.
You are dedicated, diligent and driven. As a woman working in STEAM you are a much needed role model, but do enough people know enough about your talents and achievements? STEAM-women often want to employ their skills to make a positive contribution to their world, yet struggle to be heard and seen.
Would you like to find out the little-known science behind this dynamic and how to use it to become your next best version?
Scientists are only beginning to realise the importance of the divergence between women and men: the results of research habitually done on males, often turn out to not be entirely applicable to females. One look is enough to inform you of our visible differences, but this workshop will make you familiar with how our brains differ and what the implications are for how we perceive ourselves and the world. This is at the root of most stubborn gender-related biases.
Our brain changes until the day we die, and we determine how. It all starts with awareness. You will come away with breakthrough insights and practical actions you can take immediately to start impacting a man’s world like STEAM. Join this workshop to discover the secret to being heard and acknowledged, so you can start making that difference!
The workshop will be followed by a discussion panel consisting of a key expert who will decode our brain patterns. Mattel will also explain some of the actions that the company takes to encourage young girls to follow STEAM careers in the context of their Dream Gap project. The participants will have the occasion to ask questions to the panel.
About Jessica J.J. Lutz
Mind-Body Coach & Counsellor for professional women achievers who struggle with secret self-critical perfectionism. Self-belief shatters the outer and the inner glass ceiling.
-->One-on-one support to help clients reach inner calm and confidence, feel acknowledged and valued, so they can realise their full potential with ease and joy. Women, the world needs you!
-->Building Sustainable Leadership: seminars and workshops that create awareness about the universal subconscious 'programs' that hold back so many women, and help develop new strategies to propel humankind into the 21st Century.
Combining her inner scientist with insights from her personal journey as a former correspondent in the Middle East, she shares how to avoid the point of no return that many women achievers head for, and all that she has learned a woman needs in order to connect to her power and have a fulfilling, stimulating career.
Jessica fine-tuned her sixth sense working for two decades in a region where nobody can speak their mind freely. Always an avid student of the subconscious, which determines 90% of our behaviour, in 2009 she left journalism to support women in discovering their strengths and taking up their rightful place. Since 2015 she lives with her family in Brussels.
This workshop is sponsored by EY. In the context of their Gender Inclusion programme, EY focuses on three main pillars:
· increasing opportunities for women in business leadership;
· increasing opportunities for women entrepreneurs;
· removing barriers for women in digital technologies – as a sector and as enablers to business.
Catering will be provided.
