Last Monday, the IE Women in Business Club launched the first chapter of its 2017 Dinner Series. The concept is simple: we invite you to have dinner with a top executive who comes to share insights on his/her career path and how to succeed in the workplace. Each dinner is open to a maximum of 12 participants to enable a meaningful conversation among guests and peers.
For our first event, we had the pleasure of welcoming Oscar Herencia, General Manager of Metlife Iberia who talked about the main professional challenges he has encountered and how he managed to overcome them. He also shared the advice he would now give to his younger self and inspired us with his enthusiasm and drive. Itziar Vizcaino, Head of Human Resources at Metlife was also present and she explained the different initiatives that Metlife is undertaking to promote gender equality.
Our participants were particularly curious to understand the view of a male executive on women leadership. We all left the dinner inspired and motivated to reach our personal and professional goals!
