Under the premises of globalization, a European identity is now being reconstructed. In many aspects, its strength indicates the potency of Europe itself. Nowadays leaders face a complex environment that challenges them constantly to initiate and respond to multifaceted situations with decisions having consequences not only in their sector but in other areas of society as well. While the current context demands more responsibility, higher conciseness, and greater expertise, we are faced with decreasing levels of highly qualified individuals capable of taking of leadership positions. This threatens to result in a severe crisis in Europe for the next 20 years.
The Women Talent Pool Program was designed as a viable solution to the concerns raised by the WIL network regarding the scarcity of new generation leaders, the need to strengthen the European consciousness and the deficient representation of women in leadership positions.
