Kατηγορία εκδήλωσης: Inclusivity Lounge

On May 30 2024, Women On Top is organizing the 8th Inclusivity Lounge, which will take place for the first time at the 12th Regional Growth Conference in Patras, under the auspices of the US Embassy in Athens.

The Inclusivity Lounge with the title “Women’s financial inclusion is the key to the demographic issue”, will focus on how the inclusion of the women of regional Greece in the workplace and the economy of the country is not only an important aspect but also a sustainable solution for the Demographic issue.

With the help of selected speakers from different regions of the country and drawing on the results of the large field research carried out by Women On Top, aiming to investigate the particular needs, challenges, obstacles and opportunities that women have to manage during their educational and career path in regional Greece, we will discuss which policies & tools can strengthen the employment of women from every corner of Greece, thus contributing to tackling the demographic problem.

The Inclusivity Lounge aspires to open the dialogue on the importance of equal participation and the inclusion of women and other underrepresented groups in the country’s economy with governmental, regional, academic and business bodies, at the heart of the largest platform for Regional Development in Greece.

Read more about the workshop:

It is true that money is a complicated matter. And the relationship we develop with them, even more complicated. However, it is a fact that we all have a personal relationship with money. It doesn’t matter if we earn a lot or spend a little. Just like everything that is a part of our daily lives, such as food or the people around us, there are certain feelings and behaviors that we directly associate with money. In this workshop, we will explore what role money has played in our past, which “money personality type” we belong to, how we can face our fears in relation to money and what are the steps to help us develop a healthy relation with them.

We will be happy for you to participate in the discussion and the workshop. 

When: Thursday, May 30, 13:00-14:00 & 15:00-17:00
Where: University of Patras, Axaia Hall & Workshop Hall
