In 2002 twelve Belarusian business women visited a number of women’s enterprises in Berlin within the project “Support for Business Women by Means of Upgrading Their Professional Skills at German Women’s Enterprises”. During the study-tour there aroused interest in cooperation with Belarusian business women not only on the level of individual partnership, but there appeared future prospects for the creation of Belarusian-German business women’s network. At the follow-up seminar it was decided to set up the network “Forum of Belarusian Business Women”. A year later, within Belarusian-German Program of the Support for Belarus in 2003-2004, a seminar on strategic planning of the business women’s network “Forum” activity was held. At the seminar goals and objectives, as well as prospects for the network development were defined, an action plan was worked out, the role and responsibilities of network members were specified.
The network is constantly increasing in the number of its members as those taking part in the project events later become its full members. At present the network unites more than 100 women.
Mission – integration of Belarusian business women with the purpose of creation of favorable conditions for their development, democratization of society and strengthening of their influence on economic and political decision making.
Goal – increase of business women’s competitiveness, promotion and protection of their interests, formation of an effective partnership and cooperation.
