• Women’s World Congress 2009 23/2/2009

    A WOMEN’S WORLD CONGRESS will be held in conjunction with the WOMEN’S WORLD AWARDS on March 4th and 5th, 2009 at the City Hall of Vienna. FASresearch was invited to share it’s understanding of networks.

    Ruth Pfosser, Network Analyst at FASresearch will talk on “Networking as a Strategy for Success: Why do women’s networks fail?”

    The congress intends on raising the public awareness of the particular problems women in various cultures face as well as point out the various possibilities of improving their position in the economic system and society as a whole. The central theme of the WOMEN’S WORLD CONGRESS underscores the fact that gender equality has still not been attained, even though over the course of the past decades many important advances and improvements have been achieved.

    The WOMEN’S WORLD CONGRESS wants to raise the awareness of the particular problems women face and understands itself as a constantly growing resource supporting organizations, companies, universities, schools, political parties and associations in promoting and implementing gender equality at all levels. By launching an exchange-network for social, economic, political and cultural bodies, gender issues can be addressed more adequately and specifically.

    At the congress renowned speakers from business, politics, science, women’s rights organizations, the arts and the media will reflect the pressing issues regarding women as well as their integration into the economic system, society in general and the responsibilities this entails.

    I would be pleased to meet you there!

    Ruth Pfosser
