How do you find your role in a team, what’s the best way to deal with mistakes, how do you make your voice heard – as the only woman in a room full of men? Or, how do you make demands on your co-workers, how do you establish yourself as a leader while at the same time not neglecting your family? The questions posed by the participants were just as diverse as the spectrum of experience they brought to the table. Becky, for instance, lives in London, works for a PR agency in the automotive sector, and repeatedly has to battle with an assumed lack of knowledge based on her age and gender. Livia is responsible for launching a new piece of software within her company, a Berlin waste management firm, which is presenting her with a number of challenges within her team, despite her position as acting team leader. The questions from both women centre largely on how to assert their respective positions – and how to progress their careers in sectors that are still traditionally male-dominated. Lydia approaches the topic of career from a predominantly scientific perspective. As a PhD student, she is researching how the management team at a pharmaceutical company in southern Germany handles talent management. She is primarily interested in how Bettina Fetzer deals with mistakes – within her team, but also within herself. On this, the marketing boss not only advises against dwelling too long on one’s own mistakes, but also quotes an Oasis classic with earworm potential: Don’t look back in anger.
