Once again Accenture and IE celebrated International Women’s Day with a joint event. Vicente Moreno and Diego del Alcázar accompanied the Madrid regional authorities’ Councilor for Education in the opening ceremony, Lucía Figar.

This year we wanted to celebrate the day by talking about opportunities and about how women approach entrepreneurship, hence we had a panel comprised of top-tier women entrepreneurs. Ana María Llopis was a trailblazer for women’s leadership in Spain, as evidenced by her achievements at Procter & Gamble, Banesto, Santander and, rather fittingly, Playtex!  Rosa María Oriol de Tous, who heads TOUS, is an example of how easy and how difficult it is to be an entrepreneur.  Maria Cordón, IE MBA alum (1994), successfully overcame challenges to take Quirón clinics to a 10 times higher turnover. Teresa Gonzalo launched her own company, Ambiox Biotech, aimed at developing medicines that provide social benefits. She created the firm after completing her Master in Biotechnology Management in 2008, and has already received several prestigious awards.

We were also treated to some valuable insights from Maika Sánchez, who works for the Red Cross providing support for disadvantaged women who want to set up their own business. Juan José Guemes, President of IE’s International Center for Entrepreneurial Management, talked to us about how difficult it is to create companies in Spain, and even more so for women in Africa. Finally, Diego Sánchez de León gave us some excellent advice on how to manage diversity.

Those of you who were unable to attend missed a great event, packed with good advice and tremendously enriching insights. It is impossible to summarize everything said, which is why we decided to pick out some key points and conclusions, many of which were reiterated throughout the event.

“Fortune favors the well-prepared mind.”

“Natural evolution, history and education have left women with a natural inclination to stay at home with their children. In order to launch an entrepreneurship project, women need a very strong will to overcome this impulse and succeed in business.”

“A good business plan played a key role in achieving these prizes, which will now probably help us to attract funding.”

“Diversity is not black or white. Ask for what you need, don’t expect people to be able to guess.”

“We no longer have to hunt bears to eat, we can go to the local supermarket, and a baby, even when it is at the all eating and no communication stage, can be looked after perfectly well by its father. “

“It’s always possible to do more. But the important thing is to compare yourself only with yourself.  If you are working at your full potential, you should be proud.”

“The most important thing is the results, not the way you do your work, and it is better to talk about anti-discrimination measures rather than equality.”

Un año más Accenture y el IE celebran juntos el día de la mujer trabajadora,. Vicente Moreno y Diego del Alcazar acompañaron a la Consejera de Educación de la comunidad de Madrid en la apertura formal del evento, Lucía Figar.

Este año, quisimos celebrarlo hablando de oportunidades y de cómo emprender en femenino. Para ello contamos con un panel de mujeres emprendedoras de primera línea. Ana María Llopis, sin duda una de las precursoras del liderazgo femenino en España, tal y como nos demostró con su paso por Procter & Gamble, Banesto, Santander y cómo no Playtex!  Rosa María Oriol de Tous, al frente de TOUS  un ejemplo de lo fácil y lo difícil que resulta emprender. Maria Cordón, antigua alumna del MBA 1994  un exitoso ejemplo de superación tomó las riendas de las clínicas Quirón que multiplicaron su facturación por 10;  Teresa Gonzalo,  que tras el Master in Biotechnology Management 2008,  se lanzó a montar su propia empresa Ambiox Biotech,   cuya misión es crear medicamentos que beneficien a la sociedad, con una corta andadura ya ha cosechado importantes premios.

También contamos con el valioso testimonio de Maika Sánchez que trabaja para la Cruz Roja dando apoyo a las mujeres más desfavorecidas que quieren emprender. Juan José Guemes desde el Centro de Creación de Empresas del IE nos hablo de lo difícil que es crear empresas en  España, pero sobre todo para las mujeres africanas.  Finalmente, Diego Sánchez de León nos dio sabios consejos sobre cómo abordar la diversidad.

Quienes no pudieron asistir se perdieron un gran evento, plagado de buenos consejos y experiencias tremendamente enriquecedoras. Es imposible resumir todo lo dicho y por ello optamos por entresacar algunas frases y conclusiones, muchas de ellas muy repetidas.

“El azar favorece  a la mente preparada”

“La evolución natural, la historia y la educación le otorgan a la mujer un impulso natural para quedarse en casa con los hijos, para lanzarse a emprender la mujer tiene que tener la VOLUNTAD, debe vencer ese impulso”

“Un buen business plan fue básico para ganar estos premios que ahora probablemente se traducirán en financiación”

“La diversidad no es blanco o negro. Pedid lo que deseéis no esperéis a que intuyan o adivinen”

“Como antaño ya no hay que salir a cazar osos para comer,  existe Mercadona y un bebé aunque sea un tubo digestivo que no comunica puede estar perfectamente al cuidado de su padre. “

“Siempre se puede hacer más. Pero lo importante es compararse con uno mismo. Si estás trabajando al máximo de tu potencial debes estar orgullosa.”

Lo importante son los resultados no la forma en la que se desempeña el trabajo y es mejor hablar de no discriminación más que de igualdad.

“La solución de Africa no son las donaciones ni la caridad, es el emprendimiento.” Graça Machel

Women needs support. Give them love, help them have their own business to let them feel strong in their own way. reward them with smart pens. It would make them happy.

Hi there, There’s no doubt that your site might be having internet browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, great website!
