About

Education. Inspiration. Development – the words that define the role played by The Woman community in the modern social landscape. We believe that one woman with one powerful personal story can change communities, and for this reason, we gather every year to celebrate the achievements of female leaders and inspire the next generation of strong, independent women.

The 6th edition of The Woman promotes the impact education has on society under the main theme Education, the power to change the world, thus trying to answer the international need for educational models that change communities.

Our community of powerful women can take part of the Woman Leadership Conference, develop themselves through TheWoman.ro digital magazine or become mentors on the mentorship platform launch at the beginning of 2017.

Education, the power to change the world

Approximately 300.000 young people aged 18 – 24 from Romania abandoned school in 2015, while approximately 377.000 are considered NEETS (not in employment, education or training), according to Eurostat data. Education is the pillar for change in order to help communities and societies grow. Education is a continuous process that goes beyond the formal educational system or age.

The Woman Leadership Conference promotes a continuous educational process through the chosen themes and debates that it brings forward throughout the event, but also through the Women Mentors platform.

Women Mentors is the mentoring platform whose purpose is to help create tomorrow’s leaders. Through the mentoring platform, we intermediate the meetings between mentors and mentees, subsequently creating a space of learning and growth.

The Woman community

The Woman managed to create the biggest women leadership community in Romania, with over 2000 women brought together by one sole purpose: reach their highest potential through personal and professional development.

More than 500 business women, CEOs, leaders, journalists, bloggers or freelancers participate annually at presentations, workshops and debating sessions. The access of men to the event is both permitted and encouraged.

Speakers

All women invited as speakers at The Woman Leadership Conference are business women from Romania or abroad, leaders in different fields of activity who manage to inspire and develop both personally and professionally. Moreover, we are looking for mentors that can help grow communities through their activities.
