On 16th February 2021, WIL Europe organised its second “Members Virtual Networking” meet up. At this informal online event, we welcomed 14 Members and their Guests from across Europe to meet and connect with each other.
The event opened with an introduction by our Board Member, Herke van Hulst, during which she revealed WIL Europe’s inspiring new vision, summing up our commitment and ambition: Connecting, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Lead the Way. After this, participants moved to breakout rooms for a networking session.
In small groups, participants shared their views on what lessons they had learnt from the Covid pandemic that were relevant to their professional or personal lives, with a range of perspectives put forward. For some, video calls had allowed them to build deeper relationships with the colleagues further afield. Others found that they had developed a greater appreciation for their friends and family, as well as for the natural world.
Thank you very much to our Members and Guests for joining us on this occasion. We look forward to welcoming you at our next virtual networking event in April 2021.
