March 8th: UJK’s Debate on Women in Business and Science
This initiative, held in UJK's Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences, preceded the X-jubilee edition of BUSINESS CAFES - regular, intimate meetings between business representatives and students. This time, the invited experts revealed their ways of overcoming fear of changes associated with running your own business.
As Dr. Ana Kamiska, ATHENA's UJK team coordinator, presented ideas for achieving gender equality to open up the research and potential of RPOs and RFOs in Europe, the motivational business women who made up the panel of speakers became interested in supporting ATHENA's efforts.
