We are experiencing exceptional times: Covid-19 has changed our lives in the past few months and will possibly have a durable impact on many aspects of our normality.
Economy, politics, health and education, but also gender equality: all these fields are now affected by COVID-19 emergency. EWMD and FEDEPE, Spanish Federation of Women Directors, Executives, Professionals and Businesswomen, decided to collaborate in order to give a perspective of European female leadership on the current situation through a joint interview.
The heads of FEDEPE (Ana Bujaldon) and EWMD (Nadine Nembach and Paola Ligabue), who have been in contact for some years, highlight the need of listening to women’s voices for the recovery ahead, and on the importance of collaboration networks at an international level.
