Interactive Panel Discussion - Supported by Community Outreach and Engagement Team

Pro Art continues with the seminars and panel talks and invited entrepreneurial and respected panellists to discuss women's position in business, culture, politics, education and media. The panellists and the audience will engage in an interactive discussion which is topical and needs more ideas on how to support women being successful in their own business. Our aim is to hear from many different experiences how women are treated and how they promote their ideas and talents in order to achieve and prosper in business ventures. Successful women help to create stable and thriving active citizens society. The Government has a major role and unparalleled ability to lay the foundations for successful entrepreneurship, for both women and men, through legislation and incentive which will help the business newcomer to be successful.

Women Entrepreneurs and their relationship with the Media, or how media backs women starting out in business is another topic we plan to explore. Media includes not only journalism and broadcasting, but also new and digital technology, social media, and wider networking and communication with successful women around the globe.
