The winner of the first Generation CEO Young Talent Award is Franziska Bednarz from Airbus Operations GmbH. In addition to the award, she will receive a 50% partial scholarship for the part-time Global Online MBA at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management.
The final round of the Generation CEO Young Talent Award was held last week for the first time and in digital format. The four finalists had to prove their professional know-how, personality, and leadership skills in interviews with the jury, consisting of representatives from Generation CEO and WHU.
"It was a really difficult decision for the jury," reports jury member Dr. Rebecca Winkelmann, Director of the WHU Center for Responsible Leadership & Managing Director Executive Education. "We are very pleased to join forces with Generation CEO to present the Talent Award, and thus jointly contribute to the talent development of women."
"One of Generation CEO's goals is to seek out and promote top female talent. We are pleased that with the Generation CEO Young Talent Award, we can support young, talented women in their career path together with WHU," added jury member Diana Schramm, Managing Partner at SARIVA GmbH.
