This workshop is the opportunity to hear first-hand from three exceptional female leaders about their leadership in different countries and sectors.

The panel, chaired by Nadina Gradaščević, will not only discuss the personal development as leaders of 3 inspiring women, their successes and challenges but will also address the core topic of how to reach gender balanced leadership, what we all be doing to support and accelerate this process and will inspire the audience to develop as female leaders or as men who support female leaders.

Doris Pulker-Rohrhofer is the Managing Director COO of Wiener Hafen (Vienna Port) and is the leader of the women in logistics network in Austria. Doris was previously Managing Director of CAT (City Air Terminal) as well as holding senior leadership roles in ÖBB (Austria Railways). She has a wealth of experience in these traditionally male dominated industries and as a senior Austrian female leader.

Through this wealth of experience, Karin will bring a great perspective to the panel.
