    Larisa Halilovic, Topic: 'Leadership in hybrid times'

    With the new normal, Hybrid work is here to stay, and that’s a fact. Since Authority Partners operates globally in 30 countries, this type of work is standard for us. But, to access the benefits hybrid working brings – better productivity and inclusivity – companies need leaders who have the skills to execute a good hybrid learning strategy.

    In the new episode of the AP Podcast, we discuss the characteristics of successful leaders, how emotional intelligence is connected to them, how company values are relevant in professional life, how to achieve progress towards leadership, and more.

    We’ll discuss these topics with Larisa Halilovic, an international team development expert, two-times TEDx speaker, and a leader with over twenty years of professional experience in leadership, management, training, coaching, and mentoring.

    Amina Karic & Zerina Mandzo, Topic: ‘Women in Information Technology Sector’

    Amina Karic & Zerina Mandzo, Topic: ‘Women in Information Technology Sector’

    As the Ban Ki-Moon, the eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations said: “Investing in women is not only the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do.”

    For the Authority Partners, gender diversity is one of our business priorities. In AP, close to 30% are women. While this is an excellent number for the IT industry, there is still much to do. We are involved in IT girls, the Women mentorship network, Women’s Empowerment Principles program. In AP, do not differentiate between men and women in IT. We are welcoming all IT professionals. 

    In this Podcast, Amina Karic, Vice President of Operations at AP, and Zerina Mandzo, Project Associate for IT Girls in B&H, are discussing reasons for the lack of women in the ICT sector, how do we shape one voice to fight stereotypes, how important is to engage in encouraging a change of attitude and behavior and more.

    This podcast is just a small step to inspire and empower more women choosing IT-related career paths.
