Wise Greece, committed to the issue of women’s empowerment and equality in the workplace, participated with its own Interview Station.
We met strong women with a variety of working experiences, professional goals, dreams and values behind them. We acknowledged the passion and the will for new beginnings. But also the readiness to overcome any obstacle and the powerful female potential.
In this context, Wise Greece implements educational programs regarding the achievement of Gender Equality. The Global Goal #5 of the Sustainable Development Goals. These educational programs constitute an essential support for women, promoting the elimination of gender discrimination.
Additionally, for its contribution to the empowerment of women and their economic independence, Wise Greece was honored in 2022 with the World of Difference Award by the International Alliance of Women.
Wise Greece for 10 years now supports more than 100 small Greek producers of which 60% are female company owners. 75% of the employees of Wise Greece are women, while 65% of the beneficiaries of the entrepreneurship training programs that Wise Greece implements are women. It is even worth mentioning that only in 2021 the organization provided free educational seminars to more than 1.080 women from all over Greece.
