BE A LEADING WOMAN AND
ENTREPRENEUR
IS TRENDY

“Being a Leading Woman and Entrepreneur is Trendy” was created with the purpose of inspiring, motivating and supporting women. It is an event to highlight the work of women from different fields and cultures with stories of courage, overcoming and optimism. Women who share a common goal FIGHT AND TRIUMPH !! RECOGNIZE THE LEADERSHIP OF WOMEN.

A unique event, an opportunity to share experiences, develop potentials, foster new relationships to strengthen the career and professional value of women as well as drive important changes in the future.

In the understanding that wage inequality persists and the low presence of women in managerial positions, it is true that the female incursion into companies is being felt and influences, both in the development of processes and innovation, as in markets and consumption habits.

At the salary level the difference between the sexes is being reduced thanks to the incursion of women in the creation of companies. For example, recent research has revealed that technology companies created by women use capital and resources more efficiently than those constituted by men, thus changing methods

of management of a company.

In addition, thanks to its greater participation in the labor market and its weight in the decision making of consumption in the family, the influence of women in the economic processes of our society is fundamental.

However, although the changes are obvious, they are still not enough.
Greater access to education constitutes a key stage of change. Today in Spain, for example, women represent 60% of graduates and 45% of the labor market, but when they reach senior business management, this percentage drops to 10%. Although Organic Law 3/2007 for the Effective Equality of Men and Women states that companies should ensure that they had a 40% female presence, by 2015, it was still far from that goal.
