Rising Up, the science behind lasting leadership

Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction

Rising Up: The science behind lasting leadership is the first panel of the Unstoppable Conference.

The panel, to be held in 21 February, from 10.30-12.00, will took place in a Plenary Session, with all the 40 speakers and more than 100 participants of the Conference present.

Purpose of the Session
Leaders desire to accomplish goals that matter, inspire others to join them in working toward those aspirations, and leave a lasting impact. In order to do this, they not only need the right skills, but also sustainable energy and vitality. Unfortunately, getting to the top of what is already an unequal playing field has resulted in women being told they have to push harder and work more. Drawing from experience of participation in active life, inspiring panellists will deliver a more grounded and empowering messages, while, you will be exposed to a new, evidence-backed model for sustainable success so we all make it to the top.

Why #Unstoppable?

Well, the Western Balkan Fund grew out of a desire to see more equally represented leadership roles in business and the community. This desire is not just about inspiring women to step up as leaders, but also about encouraging women to use their voice and share their successful stories. We are dedicated to providing personal inspiration and practical information to promote more equitable representation of women leadership and decision making processes in our communities at every career level and all stages of personal growth.

Every February and March, the WBF with the support of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan hosts an advocacy event by bringing in national, regional & international experts and create a space of inspiration, connection, and rejuvenation.  

Purpose of #Unstoppable conference is to foster equal access to leadership in business, government, and non-profit organizations within the Western Balkans, Visegrad regions, and beyond. This event will also promote, support, and expand initiatives that promote equal access for women and men in development processes.
