Forbes Woman Summit 2018

(scroll for English)

Prima editie a unei intalniri cu reprezentantele mediilor de afaceri, diplomatie, educatie, cultura si nu numai a fost gazduita de Forbes in luna martie, dedicata femeilor si influentei lor in domeniile in care activeaza, a unor valori deopotriva autentice si incurajatoare, inspirationale. Promitatoare, as adauga ca o scurta concluzie.

Printre discursuri individuale si paneluri centrate pe subiecte cu care se identifica o buna parte din oameni – fie la nivel profesional, fie personal – sau in cadrul unor comunitati (leadership, driverii miscarii, vizionari, inovatie), evenimentul a creat un mediu de relationare cu neconventionalul, originalitatea si curajul care stau in spatele celor care isi forteaza mereu limitele si care se afla in cautare permanenta de idei inovatoare.

Imi raman si acum cateva idei cu statut de declaratii spuse pe fondul experientelor diverse si pe care le-am corelat cu experiente proprii sau cu initiative cu care rezonez. In discursul doamnei ambasador a Frantei, Michele Ramis, au fost amintite si cuvintele lui Christine Lagarde (FMI), din care parafrazez : cu cat sunt mai multe femei care muncesc, cu atat exista mai multa prosperitate.

Comunicare, prietenie, leadership sunt calitati subliniate si demonstrate ca valori feminine, personalizate si constant adaptate, aduse in prim-plan in cadrul unor actiuni si interactiuni in viata cotidiana.

‘If we do not do things differently, then we have to ask ourselves: “who will?”’

H.E. Stella Ronner, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Romania and the Republic of Moldova.

Parerile congruente din paneluri, carisma si nuantele profesionale aduse in discutie au marcat prima editie a Forbes Woman Summit – un summit despre diversitate, dezvoltare echilibrata si o coexistenta a atitudinilor pe planuri care vizeaza nu numai o anumita categorie, ci intregi societati.

The first edition of a meeting with representatives of the business environment, diplomacy, education and culture was hosted by Forbes in March, dedicated to all women and their influence within the areas they cover professionally, to the authentic values brought by them, at the same time encouraging and inspirational. Promising, if I may draw a quick conclusion.

Among individual speeches and panels focused on hot subjects, of interest to many persons and communities (leadership, driving change, visionaries), the event created the means of direct connection with the unconventional, the originality and the courage that help launch the actions of those who always test their limits and are constantly looking for innovative ideas.

I still like to remind myself of a few ideas, statements with a background formed by different experiences that I have mirrored to some of my personal understanding and initiatives with whom I resonate. H.E. Ambassador of France in Romania, Michele Ramis, brought a few words into her speech that reminded us of Christine Lagarde’s affirmation – the more women who work, the more prosperity into this world.

Communication, friendship, leadership were some of the highlighted qualities, feminine values, personalized and constantly adjusted, brought into attention when observing actions and interactions in day-to-day life.

‘If we do not do things differently, then we have to ask ourselves: “who will?”’

H.E. Stella Ronner, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Romania and the Republic of Moldova.


Converging opinions, charisma and professional nuances brought into discussion have marked this first edition of Forbes Woman Summit, a gathering with emphasis on diversity, balanced development and coexistence of attitudes targeted not only for a certain category of people, but also for entire societies.
