Why did you join THE NETWORK?

I have been knowing The Network for a long time and joined it many years before returning to Luxembourg because I was looking for job opportunities and wanted to expand my network.

What are your duties as Vice-President of THE NETWORK?

As Vice President I am supporting the President in ensuring a smooth running of organization. In particular, I'll be looking at the development of partnership agreements to ensure The Network fulfills its mission at supports at best its members.

Why would you recommend THE NETWORK to women around you?

In today's world, women need to support each other to create more sustainable societies. The Network can help women in discovering the right opportunities, in sharing experiences about how to play the role in society they deserve. The Network is an enabler for women, joining the organization is a step towards personal and professional advancement.

We live in a hyper connected world, nothing can be done in isolation today. We should use this connectivity to create links with women because the network can act as "super power" for women. Women should learn from men, they have been networking since ages, we should do the same, or even better.
