About the Forum

The Leading Women's Forum is THE business meeting point for female top managers in the global paint and coatings industry. 

The first Leading Women's Forum took place from  15 to 16 February 2018 at Family Murjahn's Old Vineyard in Forst, Germany and gathered about 30 leading female heads of the international paint industry. Besides a variety of presentations on topics such as "Family culture driving value creation” (by Dr. Ralf Murjahn, DAW), "Women in the chemical industry and the gender diversity challenge” (by Paul Harnick, KPMG) and "How to handle leadership and company culture during a merger” (by Paula Salastie, Teknos) the participants also intensively discussed, future challenges and how to attract talents to the coatings industry, during two business workshops. Participants said they were very pleased with the forum programme and all the various opportunities for networking and getting to know each other.

The next EC Leading Women´s Forum will take place in January/February 2020.


Global Female Leaders in coatings and paints should not miss the Leading Women's Forum, because it provides a unique opportunity to network and connect.
