What Are Visible Fridays?
Visible Fridays is a partnership between IE Office of Diversity and (IN)visible Talent, a start-up focused on professional development for women created to empower and help them realize their full power and potential.
Ana Herranz, Director of IE Alumni Career Services, noticed that women were more hesitant than men about negotiating salaries and applying for jobs, and also sometimes feel that they have to choose between having a family or a career. She saw it as a vital opportunity to organize an event to create supportive services for professional women. Visible Fridays are Career Management Center events and workshops organized in collaboration with (IN)visible Talent to help them navigate career challenges.
The goals of the events are to:
- Maximize women’s professional visibility
- Create and develop a personal brand
- Generate a quality network
- Improve women’s employability
- Improve negotiation skills
IE Alumni and women who participate in (IN)visible Talent’s organization.
Events are held once a month and will be starting up again in February 2017. Find out about the topics and event details on clubs.ie.edu, IE’s Career Management Center website, and the IE Alumni LinkedIn group.
