This event brought together 160 women from the US, Serbia, Austria, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Macedonia, Romania and Mongolia, who are involved in the government, philanthropic, NGO, and private sectors. It gave us a chance to hear about strategies for empowering women to actively participate in all the arenas of life: economic, governmental, scientific, and social.
