Yet again! Equal Pay Day 2024 is supported by the Central European Initiative (CEI)

We are extremely proud to announce our cooperation with the CEI will continue this year again!

The Central European Initiative (CEI) is a regional intergovernmental forum established in 1989, following the fall of the Berlin wall. It gathers 17 Member States in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. It supports a united Europe with shared values embracing all countries, regions, peoples and citizens and fosters the strengthening of capacities of its Member States towards good governance, rule of law and sustainable economic development for stability, social cohesion, environmental sustainability, security and prosperity. Together we are striving to create cooperation opportunities for European integration and sustainable development thanks to the transfer of innovative solutions and best practices and by building synergies and partnerships.

Thanks to this cooperation, our conference and mentoring tables will be enriched by varieties of views from very successful women from 7 different countries counting Serbia, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine. Received women are mostly mentoring at our “Mentoring tables” during Friday April 12th. They will share their most valuable lessons from their fields of practice.
