    Bucharest, 24 March 2023 | The Women on Boards Directive adopted in November 2022 by the European Union provides a legal framework for gender balance in decision-making for companies across Europe. It creates an important opportunity to bring this issue to the attention of the Romanian public opinion and generate the premises to improve representation, based both on a legislative argument, as well as on a well-trained selection pool.

    Part of Professional Women’s Network Romania’s courses of action towards gender balance is creating solid bridges between the organisation and its international partners, based on common values and goals. Therefore, the process of calibrating legislation and of creating a professional selection pool of board ready women is smoother, as it is founded on the experience and good practices of the states that have proven results in the field of diversity and inclusion.

    To this end, the partnership between PWN Romania and European Women on Boards is an important step towards developing the Women on Boards pillar into an efficient driver of gender balance at leadership level. Based on this agreement, PWN Romania’s programs dedicated to women pursuing or occupying a board position will benefit from the expertise of our European collaborators, while members of the association will have the opportunity to participate in international programs.

    It is extremely important for EWOB to ensure that legislation adopted at the European level actually leads to changes at the local level. This is why we warmly welcome the Professional Women’s Network as a partner in Romania. Together we will work on the implementation of the Women on Boards Directive in Romania to achieve greater gender equality in decision-making.”- Kristen Anderson, CEO of EWOB

    We are grateful and confident that together and having the support of European Women on Boards we can promote and implement best practices for gender balanced leadership. Our association is heading towards this goal on several paths, from advocacy, educational and mentoring programs, to creating and promoting a professional data base for board ready women. Joining forces with our international partners will streamline our journey towards our common goals and will help us generate a broader impact in favour of gender balance at all levels of society.” – Ileana Botez, President of PWN Romania

    Our Women on Boards pillar has had a steady and organic growth, reaching a new stage in its evolution with the development of an advocacy task force, dedicated to drafting and promoting gender balanced legislation, particularly in respect of board representation. The partnership with European Women on Boards will help us accelerate our growth in this direction, as well as in our training and women on boards mentoring chapters, by exposing our community to international practices and models, as well as to highly functioning diversity and inclusion environments.” Violeta Ciurel, VP Women on Boards PWN Romania

    Navigating fast changes in technology and strategic patterns, companies are now investing in lifelong learning programs. However, these programs are not as effective as they should be. This is because the main concern is to provide employees with skills and information, without any concern about what learning really is about.

    When starting a new job or project we’re often thrilled and full of enthusiasm. This attitude is amazingly precious: highly motivated people can boost their performances at any given task, be it executive, creative or relational. Motivation is crucial in our lives, but some factors may undermine it: lack of purpose, disruptive emotions, lack of control, or lack of connection. All of these factors have different origins and they can be addressed differently.
