Together with Professional Women's Network Netherlands we are hosting an online dialogue on The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women's Dead-End Work.

Non-promotable tasks (NPT) hold women back. Join our online dialogue with the co-author of The No Club Laurie Weingart to discover why, and learn how to free yourself from NPTs.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to engage in a dialogue with Laurie Weingart, co-author of The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women's Dead-End Work. This book is a practical and timely guide to achieving gender equity in the workplace by alleviating women's careers from unrewarded work.

Weingart is an organisational behavior professor whose research focuses on team collaboration, conflict, and negotiation. She explores how differences among individuals can both facilitate and impede effective problem-solving and dispute resolution.

This online discussion will be moderated by Prof. Hanneke Takkenberg, Executive Director of the Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations (ECWO) and Professor of Clinical Decision Making in Cardio-Thoracic Interventions at Erasmus MC, and PWN's Book club lead, Rayna Spasova-van Aalst.

Don't miss this transformative discussion! Mark your calendar and make sure to explore "The No Club" before the event.

The Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations (ECWO) is committed to fostering inclusion. Our founding purpose in 2014 was to empower women and to create a level playing field by building communities for organisational change. Today, ECWO has expanded its perspective to embrace a wider vision of a world of inclusive prosperity. Our new mission is to create a sense of belonging for everyone within organisations through diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), anchored in social safety. We strive for settings where everyone feels valued, respected and supported. We conduct research and produce evidence-led educational programmes, events, coaching, advocacy, and advisory services. We stay true to our roots, and we have evolved to recognise that achieving true inclusion and equity requires encompassing all, regardless of gender or identity.
