EAE Barcelona Women Initiative
Welcome to the community of knowledge and education that helps women develop professionally, continually and globally, from a place of equal opportunities and sustainability.
How Do We Do It?
- By creating spaces for dialogue to share and exchange knowledge on women leadership in the business sector.
- By promoting women networking through events and campaigns that foster inclusion and diversity.
- By supporting women leadership through mentoring services that accompany our candidates before, during and after their EAE Barcelona experience.
- By organising meetings with leaders from organisations, faculty and companies that boost the professional development of women, regardless of their area of knowledge or life circumstances.
“At EAE, we work hard to guarantee equal opportunities; diversity is one of the school’s essential values and our commitment with the professional development of women is one of our main priorities.”

EAE’s Top Ten Women Entrepreneurs of Catalunya
Despite the fact that, in Spain, there are 9 women starting a business for every 10 men, most of the entrepreneurial rankings and prizes are still led by men.
That’s why EAE’s Top Ten Women Entrepreneurs of Catalunya seeks to give more visibility and recognition to 10 women and their projects, but also to activate an ecosystem of networking among candidates and stakeholders from the local industry, such as public and private entities, specialised journalists, influencers, renowned entrepreneurs and a team of experts from EAE Business School.
In this way, we help boost the talent of women in our business and educational environments and support positive change towards equality and sustainability — something that current society is desperately calling for.

Gaming, eSports and Streaming from a Gender Perspective
Authors: Carina Mellit Quartucci and David de Matías Batall

What kind of positions are occupied by women in the industry?
