GOALS of BPW International Member Projects and Experts

  • Taking responsibility for one’s own project means practicing leadership and “learning by doing” which provides the best training for personal empowerment. “Learning by doing” challenges and develops all kinds of competences, especially crucial emotional competences. A truly strong and self-confident woman is the most powerful change agent for gender equality.
  • Offering our members a platform where they can try out new ideas works like an incubator which facilitates innovation, creativity and the discovery of new paths.
  • It is imperative that BPW can show its numerous and very diverse performances. It stimulates and motivates active women and over all, founders and sponsors can experience the power of BPW.

We thank you for your contribution

 

On behalf of the PILOT Team

Online Meeting: BPW Cyprus by Kikoula Cotsapas

Great Short story

Kikoula Cotsapas

 

When I started working at the family industry years ago we had an Association of juice producers and packers with the five Cypriot industries as members. The Association's annual presidency went in turn to each member.

That particular year it was our turn but my father asked me to take the chair as he was too busy with a couple of new projects at the factory. When I said so at the Directors' meeting I realized that my colleagues were utterly surprised and looked at each other in disbelief. Finally one of them said I should not be bothered with such matters and advised me ''to send instead a man from the office”. I gathered all my courage and answered that I will take the chair and if I felt I could not cope I should step down for one of the other Directors to take over.

I was voted Chairperson of the Association for the next 10 years.
