Networking as key success factor for womens' management careers
In times of social networks and the potentials of the digital transformation networking has become a buzzword. It is common sense that networking is a key factor for the professional career for both women and men. Networking has many faces: you can set up your personal network, your professional network or you can join company networks, women´s networks etc. Digital options facilitate networking but do not replace personal contacts. Networking builds up on a thorough planning, continuity and long time relationships. Even though many studies show in particular that active involvement in a women’s network has a professionally beneficial effect for women, a lot of women neither invest enough time into networking nor follow a strategic approach. The benefits of networking are not to be expected at short-term but need time and commitment. Nadin Meloth, International Co-President of the European Women´s Management Development Network (EWMD) and Business Coach, will discuss with the participants what the key factors for successful networking are and how networks can support the personal development.
