AUDIOVISUAL WOMEN is a new leadership program for female professionals in mid- to senior level management positions that sets out to enhance the women's skillset to enable and empower them to master current industry challenges, develop innovative business models and embrace the opportunities of digitization. Through a variety of elements, the women will increase their competitiveness, build professional networks and gain more business opportunities, thus ensuring a sustainable and successful development of their businesses.

AUDIOVISUAL WOMEN addresses female managers working across the value chain in the European audiovisual industry, offering a highly interdisciplinary and unique approach to training and professional development. Besides the female professionals, the program also includes the hiring managers of their companies.

The program elements for the female professionals focus on topics such as (digital) leader- and entrepreneurship, innovation and change management in a VUCA world as well as communication and self-marketing. The combination of tailor-made live on-site and online training, 1:1 business coaching, exclusive networking opportunities and a self-study phase with access to innovative online courses allows for a holistic and interactive experience and equips the women with the necessary skills to thrive in an ever-changing industry.

The hiring managers will be included in the program through a two-day training addressing gender equality and diversity management. The training provides them with tools to implement more diverse and gender equal hiring practices to create change on a larger level.
