KLAPSTOEL ACADEMY PROGRAM

KLAPSTOEL ACADEMY

Fifteen Young Female Talents from three companies come together in our Klapstoel Accelerator Program and go through a module-based 20-week program. The module themes are chosen based on research that indicates that these are key moments in which women make a decision about their careers.

GENDER EQUITY TRAINING

Your Young Female Talents are putting in the work, we are training your colleagues and teams on gender equity to bring change from all sides in the organization. We create awareness of common unconscious biases and behaviors, give you insights into the statistics on gender differences, and give concrete and actionable advice on what to do about it.

The biggest take-away for me is that it doesn’t matter who or what you are, when you have people around you who support you, you can do anything.

As someone who works in a man-dominated environment, getting to know female peers was super inspiring. Not only do I have a stronger bond with my female colleagues at work, but I can also reach out to women I don't see every day but know will be there for me. I want every woman to have that!

The program really took me out of my comfort zone. The module career strategy was one of my favorites as this topic is something very relevant for me at the moment. Now, I feel part of an empowering community with female peers who I know will always support me.

Did you know that the gender career gap statistically opens when women turn 35?

The first years in a woman's career have a major impact on her career progression and success. Research shows that key moments in which women make a decision about their careers happen in her first and second job.
