Ziel des Hertie Gender Equality Networks (früher Women's Leadership Initiative (WLI)) ist es, eine Gemeinschaft von Unternehmerinnen und Innovatorinnen zu schaffen, indem sie Hertie fellows&friends mit ähnlichen Interessen und unterschiedlichem kulturellem, akademischem und beruflichem Hintergrund zusammenbringt. Die Idee, die hinter des Hertie Gender Equality Networks steht, ist ganz einfach: Herausforderungen annehmen – Lösungen möglich machen – Wandel gestalten. Der Hertie Gender Equality Network soll einen breiten Rahmen für verschiedene Aktivitäten und Veranstaltungsformate schaffen: Workshops zur beruflichen Weiterbildung, organisierte Mentoring Tandems und Podiumsdiskussionen. Das übergreifende Ziel dieser Initiative ist es, Frauen in die Lage zu versetzen, selbst zu Trendsettern zu werden statt nur bestehenden Trends zu folgen. Um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, verfolgt die Initiative einen praktischen Ansatz und bietet eine Reihe von Berufsbildungstrainings und -workshops sowie Mentoring-Maßnahmen an. Für weitere Informationen wenden Sie sich bitte an Cosmina Radu, Hertie Fellow und Gründer der Women's Leadership Initiative.

Hertie Gender Equality Network (HGEN)
The Hertie Gender Equality Network enables, empowers and emboldens its members to become passionate actors for gender equality, for themselves (micro), their immediate surroundings and organizations (meso) and society-at-large (macro). We aim to contribute to more gender equal-minded individuals, families, organizations and, ultimately, societies.
The Hertie Gender Equality Network is a platform that aims to work at all these three levels (macro, meso and micro), by discussing and thinking of ways to improve government policies, organizational structures and by empowering its members to become change agents themselves, in their day-to-day lives.
The idea is simple: Understand the challenge. Enable the solution. Lead the change.

SAVE THE DATE - Cracking the Ceiling Conference

Save the date!
Cracking the Ceiling (CtC) conference – Policy making in the Era of Intersectionality”, April 6-7 2019, Berlin - Hertie School of Governance

Indeed, the current state of European politics, namely the rise of the far-right, brings a sense of urgency to protect and promote the rights of minorities. We believe it is necessary to create a space to discuss not only gender inequality but also intersectional discrimination.

Intersectionality considers different systems of oppression, and specifically how they overlap and are compounded. Intersectionality comprehends various intertwined characteristics, such as class, race, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, among others. The Conference will mainly touch upon the gender, race and sexual orientation perspectives of intersectionality.

ff networks are platforms envisioned, founded and led by the Hertie fellows themselves with mentoring and funding support of the ff programme of the Hertie Foundation. While the ff networks are communities of like-minded fellows sharing particular interests, they are also settings for reaching out to senior key professionals and starting new collaborations. Hertie fellows have two opportunities a year to join each of the current networks, following up on regular Calls for Applications. The fellows are also invited to get in touch with new ideas.
