Lunch to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked on March 8 every year. It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.
This year it was an even more special ocassion, being the 100th Anniversary of this global celebration.
EPWN Madrid this year celebrated International Women’s Day with a lunch at “El Rocio”, a down-town Madrid venue specialized in andalusian cuisine.
More than sixty women professionals accepted our invitation and gathered together at lunchtime, in the middle of their busy daily schedules, in order to stop for a while to reflect on how much has already been done to reduce the gender gap, and how much is still to be done to make the promise of equality a reality.
In this regard EPWN President, Marijo Bos introduced the activities recently carried out by the association in Spain and presented forthcoming events.
Miren Polo de Lara, EPWN Spain, introduced Margarita de Cos and some time was dedicated to introducing the Global Summit of Women, known as the “Davos for Women”, which, this year takes place in Istambul on the 5-7 May. Several EPWN Spain members participate regularly in this truly unique global gathering of women influencers and opinion leaders from government and business. EPWN Madrid will organise a special event in late May to present the relevant findings of this Summit.
Everybody had an excellent time and left inspired from sharing the strength within in order to make the promise of equality a reality.
