TUM.Africa Talent: Networking Event on June 14

Kurse & Veranstaltungen |

As a conclusion of the TUM.Africa Talent Program 2023, the TUM Graduate School and the TUM Global & Alumni Office cordially invite to a Networking Event on June 14, 2023, 5 p.m. at the Vorhoelzer Forum. The event will be rounded off by a panel discussion on the topic of "Tomorrow's Academic Leaders - What Does It Take To Make a Difference?" Following the discussion, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking and exchange.

Panel Discussion

As the next generation of academic leaders, doctoral candidates play a critical role in addressing the most pressing global challenges of today and tomorrow: From climate change, resource scarcity, geo-political conflicts to rising inequality. But what does it mean to take responsibility as a leader of tomorrow? And what skills are required to make a real difference, whether it's in industry, academia or society? The concept of ‘Sustainable Leadership’ may provide a guide for future leaders, offering a style of leadership that prioritizes the well-being of people and the planet as well as profit. Decisions are therefore not only made in the context of an organization's direct market advantage or individual self-fulfillment, but also take into account various dimensions in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Easier said than done!

Join us for an interesting panel discussion that brings together a diverse group of speakers to explore what sustainable leadership can look like in theory and practice. We are pleased to welcome our panelists:

  • Dr. Anna Brzykcy, Postdoctoral Researcher at the TUM School of Management, Learning & Development Expert at the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning
  • Wayne Chinembiri, Research Associate at the TUM School of Management, CEO of TUeMpower Africa e.V., Attorney
  • Sandra Raad, Head of Innovation Network, World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator

Together, our panelists will provide us with a lively discussion and insights into their different leadership styles and share their thoughts on how to incorporate the idea of sustainability into the concept of leadership.
