Connecting, inspiring and empowering women to lead the way

Junior Project Manager Internship Offer

Position: Junior Project Manager Intern (6 months)


The European Network for Women in Leadership (WIL Europe) is a Europe-wide non-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the professional and social interests of women in leadership positions and aspiring female leaders from different sectors across Europe. 

Our mission is to connect, inspire and empower women to lead the way, by providing a space where they can meet and exchange, network, grow, and identify opportunities and ideas that are not always readily available in their immediate social and professional environments. 

Our activities are focused on international, local and online events, including those with key political and business leaders; peer-to-peer networking; and raising the visibility of our members on our communication channels (newsletter, social media).

Since 2012, we have also been running a 12-month leadership programme, the Women Talent Pool (WTP), which supports and promotes a new generation of female leaders in Europe by offering them visibility opportunities, learning opportunities, connecting them with inspiring leaders in Europe, as well as mentoring and coaching. The 9th edition kicked off in March 2024 under the high patronage of Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability and Institutional Affairs Officer at Kering and WIL Member.
