My inner leader and Sandi bell!


This is funny, today we had this leadership and gender workshop. The lecturer asked us to take a moment and meet the inner leader of us! It was a weird request, we had to sleep and relax (mediate) and she was guiding us of what to imagine. She asked us to image a place. I don’t know why, but I imagined myself in the beautiful garden of Sandi bell! (Dont laugh), Do you remeber it guys? The beautiful small garden where Sandi took care off and dreamed of her lover Mark. Anyhow, she then asked us to follow a path, and I imagined a road with a green sides to Sandi’s house! I entered the house and my inner leader (which is me) came in! Surprisingly wearing the same jacket I was wearing today! I couldn’t keep up with the instructions of the lecturer as I fall asleep and started snoring! how shameful!

When I woke up, some talked about their experience, she had asked them to imagine their inner leader giving them a box and to open it and check what was inside. I continue my imagination then, and imagined mine giving me a black box, and in it a message saying that I have a beautiful live infront of me🙂. I believe there is, and look forward for it.

Back to the lecture, which was mainly about leadership and gender. Sweden seems to be so concerned with gender equality, I think they have a Ministry for Integration and Gender. The other day I found this booklet in the Swedish Institute where they have all of those statistics about men and women and their numbers in different occupations and roles. Inspite of the social awarnace and government and non-government work to achieve gender equality, there is still inequality in achievements of women in leading roles. The lecturer pointed out that there has been a study that found that women in middle managerial positions have better skills than men. And that there has been a study in Finland which found that companies with a female CEO makes 10% more profit! That doesn’t mean that women are more competent than men, but it means that women have still to put more efforts and gain more skills in order for them to occupy a position that a man would fill with less skills.

Women around the world have achieved a lot in the past decade, but still they have a long way to go.

  1. I agree a very beautiful post. This post made me feel very warm and cozy inside. I see it with the company I work with how they will pass over a woman with more qualifications and experience…. than the man opponent and pick the man instead the woman. It angers me but at the same time I giggle to myself because I have made up my mind I don’t need a company to carry me and I will not carry a company that does not respect me because of my sex.Women will continue to excel in the years to come especially with the positive collective awareness that is occurring around the world.

    < HREF="http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2008/nov/12/women-prostitution-marriage-sex-trade" REL="nofollow">She believes that the use of prostituted women by the military, which has long taken place around US bases in Thailand, South Korea and the Philippines, has been the most important factor in the globalisation of the sex industry. In countries “where the industry thrived under military occupations,” says Jeffreys, “and the Netherlands where brothel prostitution is legalised, men flock from elsewhere to gain access to prostitution services.” Jeffreys asserts that countries that have legalised prostitution are “pimp states”. “If the state facilitates the prostitution of women, it is obviously maintaining male supremacy. These states are directly colluding in maintaining women’s inequality.”<>
