Wonder Women Works Project: Multiplier Events Boost the Entrepreneurial Spirit of Women with Disabilities

Recently, a series of multiplier events have been organised in each of the partner countries. These events connected and inspired the audience present: women with disabilities willing to develop their entrepreneurial and digital skills, women with disabilities who want to help other women with disabilities to expand and/or learn their entrepreneurial and digital skills, training organisations for people with disabilities and professionals (job counsellors, mentors and educators, among others), women entrepreneurs and associations of women with disabilities.

The first event was held on 15 December at the Instituto Universitário Atlântica in Barcarena, Portugal by EIA S.A – Educação, Investigação e Admnistração S.A. During the event, all project partners had the opportunity to participate and personally present the results of the developed products.

Viva Femina held two events in Rzeszów: on November 29 and December 20. Both sessions were a resounding success, with an outstanding presence of both local and international audiences. Attendees were enthusiastic to support the cause of equality and inclusion, as well as to learn about the project’s activities and tools.

Fundación Docete Omnes held the event on 19 January at the Casa de la Juventud in La Zubia, Granada. A group of experts in the digital and business fields were brought together as speakers along with an audience interested in these topics. The meeting produced an enriching space for dialogue and learning.
