“The future of work won’t be only about academic degrees – practical skills will be vitally important and in great demand. Embracing the new “skill age” will help open doors of opportunity for women across Western Europe.»

Mckinsey study “Women and the future of work”

Why we do it?

According to the World Economic Forum, it’s expected to take at least 100 years to reach gender equality in the workplace. Furthermore, a recent study from Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation (“As mulheres em Portugal, hoje. Quem são, o que pensam e o que sentem”) shows that Portuguese women feel “depressed, unhappy and underpaid”.

We can do better!  In a fast-paced world, there is no time to wait for balance.

Having more women in leadership positions is not only crucial for organizational balance and business success as it is paramount for a sustainable socioeconomic paradigm.

Women have outnumbered men at universities and, in some countries, even at the workforce. The challenge is to prepare and empower them to lead with their natural abilities and strengths instead of replicating the predominant masculine leadership style.

Portugal is the 10th country in the world with the highest number of female entrepreneurs and 43% of Portuguese women said that they would like to create their own business.

Your wish is our command, ladies!

How does Queen Bee accelerator work?

Newmanity School believes in non-formal transformational education so Queen Bee Acceleration program is a combination of community learning, immersive experiences, inspiring masterclasses with experienced professionals, mentoring and coaching.

Queen Bee Accelerator is a group project-based program divided into 4 stages:

Phase 0. Ignite Retreat – To reset and boost your well-being, get into a wonder woman mindset and create community bonds.

Phase 1. Sandbox Projects – Groups will develop in-house projects according to their competencies and passions.

Phase 2. Companies’ challenges – Groups will develop innovation projects for companies (our clients).

Phase 3. Social Innovation projects – Groups will give back to the community by developing social impact projects and mentoring girls with their newly acquired leadership skills.

During phases 1 to 3 groups, all the groups have weekly challenges according to one key business focus – People, Purpose, Planet or Profit – in order to complete the overall assigned project.

Groups will be supported by dedicated project mentors, leadership coaches, a board of advisors with different backgrounds and a library with resources.
