We highly recommend FLD for their exceptional workshops empowering women in academia. With a deep understanding of the unique challenges in this field, they create an inclusive environment and provide essential skills, garnering overwhelmingly positive participant feedback. Thanks to FLD our programs for PostDocs and for international researchers and scientists have received exceptional praise and participants navigate the complexities of the academic world more effectively. We look forward to continuing our collaboration as FLD demonstrates expertise and commitment to advancing women in science.

As co-founder and member of our company network AGWN (AGCO Global Women Network), it was a particular concern of mine to get a competent and reliable training partner for our German-speaking locations for topics such as "Working Mom & Dad" or "Assertive, instead of always nice".
With Fe:male Leaderhip Development we have found this partner. The FLD team as well as the feedback we received on the trainings are convincing and I am sure that the trainings have contributed to strengthening our corporate culture.

You feel empowered, you feel enlightened. This sensation should be made accessible to more individuals. I particularly appreciated the blend of professional insight, sharing experiences, and experimentation. Thanks to the trusting atmosphere, with women I already knew, I could open up and exchange freely.

I participated in the "Games with Power" training in October 2019 and found the day very rewarding. The training was conducted with a cross-functional group of participants, which provided exciting insights and also showed the challenges of other fields. The two trainers did a great job of keeping the participants engaged with a mix of theory-based instruction and practical group exercises. The most beautiful result for me personally is that our small working group that was randomly put together after the training still exists. We meet for quarterly exchanges on the topic of "Playing with Power" - this has been going on for over a year now.

If you want to empower women to pursue leadership positions with fun and competence, you have come to the right place.

It is a strategic goal for OFFIS to become an even more attractive employer, especially for female employees, and to encourage them to take on more leadership and management tasks. FLD’s consultants helped us with their gender check to identify the areas in the company that required work and to jointly develop a holistic strategy for more gender equality. FLD also supports us with the implementation in a pragmatical and experienced manner.

Thanks to FLD’s support of our Finance is Female program, we have been able to offer several successful and extremely interesting workshops for our female participants. The feedback has been consistently positive, which is why we are always happy to work with FLD. Particular praise was given to having had a speaker with many years of experience in banking who thus is familiar with the industry’s challenges. Due to the excellent presentation of the topics and the simultaneous integration of interesting facts and figures, it is very easy to follow FLD’s talks.
