Companies and institutions across the world have been experiencing an "Aha moment". They notice that their business models and administrative activities should address the needs of their female clients, customers and employees. Why? Because women have their say, they speak up and stand up for themselves, their families, friends and communities. We see this spirit of empowerment in Polish and Israeli women. They have a lot in common, also due to hundreds of years of joint history of our two nations. It's high time we gathered together and shared our experiences, hopes, fears and projects, as well as learned new skills together. This conference will be just the beginning of new initiatives, new synergies and new business partnerships.
The event will be held in English.
The participation in the conference is cost-free.
THE CONFERENCE IS ORGANISED UNDER THE HONORARY PATRONAGE OF THE SPOUSE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND AGATA KORNHAUSER-DUDA
