In collaboration with PWN Copenhagen, Djøf is pleased to present an event focusing on professionel gender bias.

This evening's event is divided in three parts: 

17:00-17:30 Networking Session. We would like to start the event with a networking session, where you can get to know other members in an informal setting, build relations, and get inspired on your next professional opportunity.

We are glad to have as presenter our VP of Balance Leadership Jenifer Clausell-Tormos, who is also Founder of Develop Diverse, a start-up helping organizations to Discover Talent Beyond Bias. She will drive us through two small activities to make us aware of our own biases, and it will be followed by research-based evidences of gender-biases and self-biases in the workplace.

We are honoured to welcome Kirsten Drejer, who is co-Founder, and former CEO of Symphogen, a successful Danish biotech focused on discovering new cancer treatments.  She will inspire us on how to become a leader in a men´s world and how she kept true to herself and developed her own leadership style. She will describe her experiences during her career development, all the way from university to becoming the Co-founder and CEO of Symphogen, and up to holding Board member and Advisory Board positions.
