HeforShe at IE – Why should HE stand up to support HER rights?


This and many other interesting questions were discussed at the HeforShe at IE Launch event on Friday, June 17th. The IE Women in Business Club managed to gather a group of top-notch panelists to discuss the importance and benefits of gender equality in a Panel:

– Michele Meneghini, CR and Diversity and Inclusion Manager at PWCHeForShe [1]

– Sandra Moreno Calderon, Managing Director – CFO & Enterprise Value Spain and Portugal Lead at Accenture Strategy

– Erik Schlie, Dean of the IMBA Program at IE Business School

and Rolf Strom Olsen, Professor at IE Business School


The Panel was moderated by Joaquin Pardo, currently International MBA student at IE Business school and former program coordinator at UN Women.

With over 80 participants, the event was a great success! It showed that there is a great interest in the student body to support this UN campaign, which encourages men to support women’s rights. IE is one of the first Business Schools in Europe to launch a broad campaign dealing with this topic. This event will only be the start of many more initiatives in support of HeforShe at IE to come. We don’t just want to start the conversation; we want to lead a change in mindset!
