Together with Bumble Germany, The Devi teamed up to create a memorable evening for female creatives, makers and entrepreneurs at betahaus Berlin. The goal was to emphasise the importance of community, how we can build them and maintain them, what brands and businesses have to do with it, and in which way a strong women circle empowers each and everyone of us women to thrive even more.
Next to our panel with Christiane Bördner (Co-Founder of the Communication Agency The Gaabs and Founder of I Love You Magazine), Shagun Tomar (Editor and Founder of OKOLOLA), Maren Langer (Filmmaker and Creative Director) and moderated by Bernak Kharabi (Founder of The Devi), the evening was packed by an interactive conversation with the audience who shared their ideas and questions openly. We learned, laughed and made meaningful connections.
One of our discussion points was dealing with a study of the National Academy of Sciences of January 2019 explaining that "75% of female leaders maintain an inner circle composed primarily of women". Basically showing in which way a powerful and positive environment created by women enables the path for female leadership. In order to achieve this, we need safe spaces for women to speak up.
