From gender diversity to female leadership REPORT OF THE JUMP FORUM 2011


What is JUMP Forum? The JUMP Forum is the biggest single day event dedicated to the professional lives of women and their career planning. Each year it inspires hundreds of professional women and men across Europe, featuring the most successful women and the most brilliant experts in gender diversity.


Five year of JUMP Forum On Thursday 05 May 2011 the JUMP Forum celebrated its 5th anniversary at The Automotiv House in Brussels! Five years of growing from strength to strength, dedicating ourselves to advancing the professional lives of women and working with companies to promote gender balance.

WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE WOMEN-FRIENDLY COMPANIES


From gender diversity to leadership variety More women in management creates a space for men and women to expand the way they lead. Beyond a gender diversity programme, companies should seek to diversify the range of leadership behaviours and spread good practices within the organisation. New leadership models and corporate structures need to be developed that are more in tune with the competencies and leadership approaches of the women executives whom companies need to attract and keep if they are to remain competitive. Women were being urged to conform to a mainstream leadership style that was considered a fundamental requirement for anyone who hoped to exert authority in public life. Henceforth female leaders and diversity in leadership create competitive advantage by changing the company culture. Getting new skills for a changing workplace is a strategic decision!


Let’s give birth to a radically different future The fifth JUMP Forum prompts us to question the real meaning behind it. Thank you for attending this year’s Forum. Thank you for your loyalty. Thank you for supporting JUMP’s mission through your presence. But what exactly is JUMP’s mission? Haven’t we already achieved gender equality? On the occasion of the Forum’s fifth birthday, I wanted to expand on this year’s theme, “From gender diversity to leadership variety”. Why? Isn’t gender diversity the ultimate goal?

mainstream leadership style that was considered a fundamental requirement for anyone who hoped to exert authority in public life. Henceforth the mass arrival of women on the labour market is bringing more diversity in leadership and creating competitive advantage by changing business culture making it more respectful of everyone, both men and women.

More women in management produces a space for men and women to expand the way they lead. Beyond a gender diversity programme companies should seek to diversify the range of leadership behaviors and spread good practices within the organisation. New leadership models and corporate structures need to be developed that are more in tune with the competencies and leadership approaches of the women executives whom companies need to attract and keep if they

JUMP is therefore not only a tool for helping more women reach the top, but above all it is an avenue for change, leading society towards greater responsibility and sustainability. The success of women is fundamental to this transformation. Becoming aware of this ultimate aim of JUMP, I met Marc Luyckx Ghisi at TED X Brussels. I heard him voice my thoughts exactly: “Women are the leading vectors of change”. It was therefore obvious to me that he was the right person to lead the 2011 Forum. Here is what he wrote about JUMP: “In pushing for more women in leadership positions in

survival, because those women could propose a shift in the enterprises’ agendas towards more CSR and sustainability.” We live in a marvellous era when for the first time in humanity, we can at last choose our own path. What we do with it is our responsibility. We can imprison ourselves just as we were imprisoned before, but with different roles. We should make the most we can of our lives, because now we have access to everything. Furthermore, if we want to become a force and a voice in this world, we have to support each other as women and not let ourselves be distracted by rivalry. This type of archaic jealousy is still encountered far too often. It is mainly the consequence of thousands of years of domination.

«

A new culture, a new identity for men and women is possible. The world needs truly liberated women working alongside men so that the world can take the essential steps towards greater responsibility. I can’t resist finishing with a quote from the philosopher Alain Touraine, who explains that the reason why women want power is to share it: “The world of women, whose goal is not the destruction of domination but the construction of self, is driven by the desire to experience an existence which they themselves have transformed, and the re-ordering of society. Men, in contrast, conquered the world by concentrating power within the hands of just a few.”

For the first time in humanity, we can at last choose our own path. What we do with it is our responsibility


Foreword Marc Luyckx Ghisi Chairman of the JUMP Forum 2011

JUMP is an enabler of a new and more sustainable society. But it is also in the same time helping business leaders to generate more intangible assets, which are counting for more than 50% of its value on the stock market. It is thus pushing enterprises towards a win-win scenario for society and for business. We will not be able to solve our problems with the old patriarchal values of «CCC" (command control and conquer). Those values which have dominated our societies for 5000 years at least, are not going to make it. We will have to introduce a new cocktail of values of respect and care for nature, for society and for ourselves. Now usually women are more able than men to introduce those new life-oriented values in society and business. In pushing for more women in leadership positions

in Business and administrations, JUMP is pushing towards Humanity’ survival, because those women could propose a shift in the enterprises agenda’s towards more CSR and Sustainability. We see indeed some important groups of enterprises which begin to claim that for them profit is only a consequence of their action towards Humanity’s Common Good. JUMP could be seen as pushing enterprises in the direction of becoming «part of the solution" instead of «part of the problem" increasing at the same time their intangible value".

It was great to be in the company of so many inspiring women. Dorothy Dalton


Congrats with the vision, content and organization of the event! Michèle Mees


Thank you for inviting me to participate in the 5th anniversary JUMP event. I thought it was a very successful, and a very thought-provoking, event – and it was a pleasure to meet (some!) of the 550 delegates. Peninah Thomson Thank you for having me at the JUMP forum. I much appreciated to be there, meet with you and many other interesting women and attend the workshops. Hebe Boonzaaijer


There was such a great atmosphere and a real sense of hope of change which is of course what you are all about. You should be immensely proud. Not an easy task but it really feels like you are making an impact. Claire Soper

Je pense sincèrement que le combat n’est pas simplement pour les femmes, mais pour une humanité plus éveillée! Et si cela doit se faire par nous «les femmes» et bien, il me semble que nous sommes plus courageuses et plus audacieuses que les hommes pour les choses qui concerne l’avenir.

Thanks for the great seminar. I had nothing but good feedback from participants, they all said it was very interesting to them and set them to think.
