25 October, 2pm-7pm
The Stanhope Hotel, Brussels, Belgium
European Women on Boards is launching the EWoB Talent Pool, an online database of board-ready women. The Talent Pool brings together the profiles of talented, cross-border and cross-sector women who are ready to become board members. By increasing the international visibility of board-ready women, and connecting them with companies across Europe, this innovative tool seeks to enable talented women to reach the top echelons of decision-making. Join us for the launch of this cross-border Talent Pool!
The EWoB Talent Pool will be presented by Sanna Wester, Chair of the EWoB Talent Pool Admission Committee, and the event will also feature two keynote speeches (Saskia Van Uffelen, CEO Belux Ericsson and a representative from the European Commission). A panel discussion, made up of Talent Pool members will also take place (participants tbc).
We will also showcase the results of the EWoB Network Project, which has been co-funded by the EU (PROGRESS 2014 to 2016).
The event will be followed by a networking cocktail and demonstration of the database.
Invitations have been issued to EWoB guests. If you are interested in attending the event, please contact us. The deadline for registration is 10 October.
