On the 4th of December 2017, Claudia de Castro Caldeirinha and Corinna Hörst have discussed their book Women Leading the Way in Brussels at the Directorate General for Human Resources and Security of the European Commission. Also present to the discussion was Monique Pariat, Director General of the Directorate-General Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) and one of the interviewees of the book.

It was an inspirational discussion with the audience on the obstacles of women in all stages of their career and how to overcome them, including practical advice given by both the authors of the book and Monique Pariat. How can you be visible? What is my leadership style as a woman? How we achieve gender equality in leadership?

We would like to give a special thanks to Monique Pariat for creating time in her busy schedule and sharing her knowledge and experience with us. Thank you for being a role model and empowering the next generations!
