"Leading Ladies – Nordic Female Leaders"

FAWN thanks all involved with our October 7, 2019, event, "Leading Ladies - Nordic Women Leaders", the ones making the concept, taking the initiative, the moderator, speakers, attendees, all others contributing and assisting to making the event so successful.

Also thanking the Consulate General for their support and letting us have the event in their beautiful venue.

We learnt, among other things, about being persistent, confident and to network a lot on the road to success. The purpose of the Leading Ladies project, created by Katarina Holm-DiDio, KHD Consulting International LLC, is to advance women in leadership, raise the profile of leading women overall and inspire young rising women leaders to pursue their dreams. 

The panel discussion was followed by lively networking.
