Empowering Women in Business: Poslovne Novine Hosts Successful Networking Event in BiH

Women in Business

Poslovne Novine, a leading business publication in Bosnia and Herzegovina, hosted a dynamic B2B networking event titled "Women in Business" on Wednesday, March 6, 2024. The event gathered over a hundred accomplished businesswomen from various sectors across the country.

The focus of the event was on celebrating the achievements of women in business and exploring their pivotal role in shaping the future of the economy. Attendees had the opportunity to network, exchange experiences, and engage in targeted discussions aimed at fostering collaboration and professional growth.

"Despite the fact that women lead some of the largest global companies, their representation in high-level executive positions remains modest, both globally and in our country. We strive to change this perspective and are working hard to highlight the importance and contributions of women to the business world," said Mr. Emil Kučković, director of Poslovne novine.

The conference was opened, and the welcome speech was delivered by the Vice President of the Foreign Trade Chamber of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Ahmet Egrlić.

A number of successful women took turns on the stage, including many who started their careers very early and are now achieving success in both domestic and international markets.

International University of Sarajevo was represented at the event by Ms. Velida Handžić-Mirica, the University Communications Office Manager, who shared insights on the significant contributions of women to modern educational trends and emphasized the importance of gender diversity in academia and beyond.

"The representation of women in leadership roles within the educational sector is crucial for fostering innovation and driving positive change," remarked Handžić-Mirica during her presentation. "By empowering women in education, we not only create more inclusive learning environments but also inspire future generations of female leaders."

The event provided a platform for attendees to discuss various topics related to the future of business, including entrepreneurship, digitalization, and sustainability. Participants exchanged valuable insights and best practices, paving the way for enhanced collaboration and innovation in the business landscape of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
