Women in Leadership Series: Women in Entrepreneurship

On May 9, we inaugurated the Barcelona chapter of our Gender Diversity & Inclusion committee with an event at the Hotel Majestic.


For this event focused on Women in Enterpreneurship, We enjoyed a very special speech by Carlota Pi, cofounder of Holaluz, who explained her inspiring story of how she set up and manages her green energy start up, while being the mother of three children.

 

For Carlota, the most important aspect when founding the company was “to create an ecosystem where the people could experience 360º development.” On the other hand, during her presentation, she highlighted the importance of flexible work-hours as key tool for worklife balance. She considers that this flexibility can be achieved through objective-driven work and that this model is “fundamental for the efficiency and productivity” of the people in the company.

 

In terms of diversity, Holaluz, is a great example, with 50% female representation on almost every team.

She was undoubtedly a great speaker to inaugurate the committee’s activities in Barcelona. See you soon at future editions!
