More than a year since the pandemic started, and we are finally on our way out of lockdown and restrictions. But these positive signs are not enough to forget that Covid-19 worsened gender inequalities and the many challenges faced by minority groups in the workplace.

That is why we wanted to make a stop in the way and evaluate the impact LMF Network is having on its growing community during the first quarter of 2021.

LMF has been working twice as hard to empower women and people from the BAME community. We have delivered workshops and events to help them…

One year ago, I was finishing my exams for my Master’s degree in Economic Development and International Cooperation.

As often happens, once you have finished university, you are not immediately sure what the next step could be. Either you continue your studies — so go after a doctorate — or you start a tiring and sometimes counterproductive search for your first job.

My research started in May 2020. During my last exams, I started to send my resume for positions I considered interesting and in companies that I was most passionate about.

Right from the start, I faced a systemic…

The idea portrayed by the media is that we can’t find happiness until we “get to the top”¹ — but where is the top? If Drake says, “nine figures was the goal ’til I hit it”, ² — then where is the limit? Hence, when will we ever really be fulfilled and know what true happiness is?

This article will delve into my concern that we have transformed happiness into an equation, where the key component is money rather than the feeling it should be.

A Concrete Formula for an Abstract Feeling.

From June 14 to June 16, LMF Network participated in the CogX Festival. This event gathers CEO’s, entrepreneurs, academics, activists and policymakers to inspire positive change, celebrate innovation, discuss global topics, and share the trends that will shape the future.

It also provided an opportunity to create a global community through conversations and networking opportunities.

During the festival, LMF Network had the opportunity to MC…

The Survivorship bias and Tokenism

Is working hard the only thing you need to achieve anything?

Let’s say it is now less and less true. But in fact, we don’t realize it. We continue to overestimate the actual odds of taking the social elevator for both ourselves and others.

This is because of the Survivorship bias.

This bias leads us to ignore the stories of people who “didn’t make it”. It is linked to the intuition of a Hungarian mathematician, Abraham Wald, in World War II (WWII).

During WWII, engineers studied a way to make planes less vulnerable. Analyzing the bullet holes on the fuselages…

Après un long et humide mois de Juin ( du moins au Royaume-Uni), il semble que l’été soit enfin arrivé ! C’est donc le moment parfait pour revisiter ce premier semestre et penser à nos désirs et objectifs professionnels pour la seconde partie de l’année.

Prenons quelques minutes pour respirer et partager quelques astuces qui, je l’espère, vous seront utiles dans les mois à venir.

After a very long, misty June and summer looming ahead, it feels like the perfect time to reflect on our first semester and career aspirations for the months to come.

With six months left to achieve — or not — our 2021 goals, it is time to take a break and share valuable tips to plan the rest of your year.

As Zora Neale Hurston said: “No matter how far a person can go, the horizon is still way beyond you”.

According to the World Bank, female-run enterprises are steadily growing all over the world, contributing to household incomes and the growth of national economies.

Unfortunately, the number of women entrepreneurs is significantly lower than that of men.

CNN found out that the number of women running Fortune 500 companies has hit an all-time record of 37. However, that’s still only made for 7.4% of these top companies.

What are the reasons behind this gap?
