#InternationalWomensDay 2020

On behalf of all of the organizers, Polish Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Belgian Business Chamber and Klub českých podnikatelů v Polsku, we would like to cordially thank you for your participation in the #InternationalWomensDay the 9th of March in the Ambasada Kanady w Polsce.

This special celebration was a great success ✨with over 80 people in attendance. We have received notes and comments from you saying how much you appreciated our efforts to encourage businesswomen. By providing investment tips and discussion over the gender pay gap we truly believe in our impact on women’s situation in business, which will help you to develop yourself and face new challenges.

We hope that you have spent a nice time being surrounded by other impressive women and that our meeting was a perfect ground for networking reasons. We are impressed by the high level presented during quiz time – our symbolic gift should remind you of the main message of our meeting:
– Be brave!
– Don’t be afraid to ask for a raise!
– Don’t be a perfectionist!
– Allow yourself to make mistakes!

Big thanks for our sponsors! It wouldn’t be so great if it wasn’t for your generous donation and invaluable support!
