Women at Work networking event

“How does SHE do it?”

Do you ever wonder how other women at the top of their game are getting things done? How they stay focused on work, take care of themselves and others, achieve their dreams or goals and stay inspired? We at Women at Work always wonder, connect and share to inspire…

We are proud to invite you to attend the networking event of Women at Work on Wednesday the 8th of November from 17.30 – 20.00 at Huis ten Haghe in The Hague. Please join us for a paneldiscussion on “how does SHE do it?” We invited 3 inspiring women to join us and share their stories. Women who worked and lived in other parts of the world and have seen from up close how other women do things. The event will be in English and moderated by Natasha Bonnevalle.
