President of Business & Professional Women CR z.s. and Founder of the Equal Pay Day ČR conference


In 2010, I founded the BPWCR as a part of the world’s most influential organization Business & Professional Women International, which aims to support women in their economic independence – the main methods are mentoring, networking, education.
Since the same year, I have been also organizing the Equal Pay Day conference, where every year more than 1500 women have been registered. Already in 2010, I’ve invented the so-called speed mentoring – fast and effective transfer of experiences at roundtables in a time-limited period. We pass this method to also other, not only non-profit organizations. The organization has become a partner in dozens of foreign projects and implements a number of its own projects and regular activities.

After many years of working in managerial positions in banking and in the bodies of big companies, I try to use my knowledge and experiences to support women and girls in their personal and proffessional development.

I love people, I enjoy meeting them and learning from them – each person is unique and it will never stop to fascinate me.
