“In my opinion, the effective development of our country can only begin with the involvement of women in local governments.
A systematic analysis of local self-government bodies reveals stubborn facts – it’s just like real life: there are few women in key managerial positions, a lot of women hold the positions of deputies or line managers, while men continue to hold most positions in which key decisions are taken.
Global experience shows that women’s involvement in managerial bodies clearly makes an organization more successful when it comes to business, and more resilient to crises and adaptive when it comes to management! It is indeed necessary to change traditional stereotypes about the place of women at all levels – from that of the individual to that of the state! That’s why you need to inspire your women colleagues through your own example!”
