NewsThanks from Irena Jelínková, participant of Equilibrium 2016

I would like to thank you for the chance to participate as a mentee in the Equilibrium programme 2016.

As often happens in life my expectations at the beginning were different: I wanted to get some practical advice on how to fit all of my duties as a working mother into the 24 hours in a day and into the 7 days in a week. Instead of that I got a lot more: I got my self-confidence back. I have realized that even if I am maybe not up to date with all the modern technical tools and networks I still have a lot of skills and experience to offer to my employer and to the people around me.

I owe it to my mentor William who has encouraged me to follow my ideas when I am convinced they are right and not to look over my shoulder too often. I owe to many inspirational women who shared with us their exceptional stories. And I owe it to the Equilibrium team who made it possible for us to be part of a very unique group and spirit.

I can only recommend participation in the Equilibrium to every woman who would like to gather new ideas and energy.

A big THANK YOU to all of you,

Irena Jelínková
