Mornings are the best at CampusWIN Academy Days. We catch up with our sisters!
In the Masters’ Talks, we met the most interesting and creative leaders at Allianz Turkey. Derya Tamdoğan is the system development and reporting manager. She shared her magic formula about “Creativity as a Lifestyle.” She encouraged us to tap into our power within: “Every person has creativity. You should find what’s inside.” Her career journey and innovative initiatives were inspiring for all of us. A high energy discussion with Murat Toz, digital media manager, and Özlem Mutlu, sustainability officer, followed. Murat’s background is in digital media and his projects are super interesting: Allianz Motto Music is one of those! Murat and Özlem encouraged us to be authentic in our expression and adventures. We laughed, learned and reflected.
After the Masters’ Talks, our rock star CampusWIN Committees presented their updates. The TurkishWIN and BinYaprak teams shared with us updates on upcoming projects. We loved loved loved the new CampusWIN logo. Our new social media accounts are in the works! Stay tuned…
And finally, it was time for the company visit – we love this experience! Every floor has a special color and concept at Allianz Turkey. We visited three floors- yellow, blue and purple. The blue floor is inspired by a sailing concept. The fun floors, pillows and all the accessories are in blue! The purple inspired by golfing and offers mini-golfing experiences! You get the drift. By the way, the company has a fitness center inside the office space- very cool. You would have no excuse to skip the gym. The corporate culture of Allianz and her open expression can be felt walking down the halls. We loved the creative vibe in the office and Allianz leaders. Thank you for hosting us today!
Our final activity was to play the “Toplumsal Eşitlik” game by Öğrenme Tasarımı. We formed two groups and were led into a discussion on gender equality in a fun and creative way! We shared words and experiences. We do not want to give away the fun, but you should play it for an open discussion in diverse team- in business, student club or with family.
