Wir sind stolz auf unsere Schirmfrauen und dankbar dafür, dass sie sich mit uns für die Initiative She Means Mentoring einsetzen.

Bettina Metz

Managing Director UN Women Deutschland

“Mentoring means networking. Networking between people of all ages, people who have been working in a company for a long time and people who just started to work there as well as networking between women and men. Women still do not benefit form networking as men do. This has to change with She Means Mentoring. Women are well educated; they do have a lot of knowledge and abilities. Women are able to compete with men on all fields, but they do not have the same chances. We need role models who support women. We need people listening and encouraging mentees on their careers. She Means Mentoring will provide this support – hopefully with you on board.”

Carina Bauer

CEO IMEX Group and Co-Founder She Means Business conference

“She Means Mentoring is the sister initiative to She Means Business, the great networking event and educational programme for women in the global meeting industry. She Means Mentoring is about supporting each other within our industry and learning from each other. Every woman has a great story to tell and by sharing, we can learn from each other and profit from this valuable experiences and knowledge. I am very happy to be a chairwoman for this wonderful initative and to be able to help women to achieve their personal and carrier goals. We do need formats like this, as our survey has shown.

Sabine Loos

Managing Director Messe Dortmund

“The event industry is largely female. However, this fact is not reflected in the management positions. I would like to encourage women to be enthusiastic about management tasks and plan their careers systematically. Women are particularly burdened at work if they want to combine their career with a family. That is why working mothers need special support at this point. The industry also needs more young talent. We need to attract female employees. For this we have to raise awareness of the need to improve the basic conditions for working women and mothers. I want to lead by example. I am a woman in a leadership position myself and a mother.”
