L-Women At Work: November 11 2011, Amsterdam

There are millions of L-Women across Europe, most of whom are active in the labour market,as employees, managers or business owners. In addition, the purchasing power of L-women is immense and the influence we can have on the workplace and society is not necessarily recognisable.

There are millions of L-Women across Europe, most of whom are active in the labour market,as employees, managers or business owners. In addition, the purchasing power of L-women is immense and the influence we can have on the workplace and society is not necessarily recognisable.
The intention therefore is to create an event to try and maximise the value we can get from and bring to the business world, by sharing ideas, engaging with, motivating and being motivated by other L-Women, learning from successful women who are ready to share their experiences with us, and be encouraged and offered practical support for our own career development.
