Despite the loud clamoring many companies are making about equality and diversity, women are still underrepresented in managerial and executive roles and do not receive equal pay. Nonetheless, women are increasingly strategic about building and leveraging their networks for career success. The results are lasting relationships that can be the building blocks for future job placements. This Lunchtalk is moderated by CLBO Director Heather Hofmeister, Professor for the Sociology of Work at Goethe-University in Frankfurt. Speakers are Melissa Fisher, Cultural Anthropologist and professor at New York University, Paula Landes, Head and Founder of Digital Media Women e.V. Rhein-Main, and Nicole Beste-Fopma, Member of the Board of Business and Professional Women Germany (BPW).
