IE PRESENTS 6 MILLION EURO SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR WOMEN

Madrid, March 2017. IE presents a special fund with an endowment of 6 million euros for scholarships aimed at women.  The key objective of #IEWomen is to enable the world’s best female talent to undertake IE programs, giving priority to women in the fields of technology, entrepreneurship and leadership, or women in Africa.

Since its inception IE has been committed to diversity as one of its core values. The overriding aim of IE is to promote career development among women with a special focus on the field of technology, shaping an entrepreneurial mindset and building leadership skills. “It is important to know what women want in terms of management education, career, and future success,” says Celia de Anca, director of IE Foundation’s Center for Diversity, which is running the initiative. “Understanding how success is perceived and defined is key to fostering diversity among students. Our ideas about what constitutes success have changed. Success does not mean the same for everyone. One of the IE initiatives is the “Colors of Success” campaign, which explores these differences and shows IE’s recognition of them, given that success is a very different life project for each one of us.”
