Minister Anne Berner on  women enterpreneurship

Anne Berner, Minister of Transportation and Communication, paid a visit to Vilnius 30.3.2016. Her one-day program included  a speech at EIGE, the European Institute for Gender Equality.   Minister Berner gave a speech on Women´s Entrepreneurship to an attentive public of  mostly Lithuanian women representing public, private  and academic sectors, business schools and NGO´s. 

Minister Berner´s speech was  truly inspirational, wise and draw from her own experience as business leader before picking up her position with the government in spring 2015.

Minister Berner pointed out that now is the time for strong women.  Women need to set examples for other women, we are all the sum of the choices we make in life. Women often look not only for themselves but for their family and that´s why empowerment of women is so very important. Gender is a fact, not an obstacle. A good leader is an agent of change, fueled by passion and setting an example for others.  In business, as in life in general, there are no glass ceilings. It´s always up the individual. If you think you can, you can!
