The European Network for Women Excellence (ENWE) is an advocacy group focused on building a network of databases of female professionals selected from various fields of knowledge. We want to promote the presence of female excellences in European media and in panels and conferences all around Europe.
The group is fostered by a community of italian female journalists and cultural activists who think that it is urgent to give back a gender-balanced representation in the european media landscape. The European Network for Women Excellence is a project developed by the association GiULiA Giornaliste and by the agency for cultural transformation cheFare, and is one of the winners of the ‘Expanding the Female Talent Pipeline in Europe‘ grant by Open Society Foundations.
GiULia (short for, in italian, Free and Autonomous United Female Journalists) is an italian association known nation-wide that brings together professional female journalists who believe in the democratic and anti-fascist spirit of our manifesto.
cheFare is a no profit organization promoting cultural transformation.
We are born in 2012 as a 100.000 euros prize for innovative cultural projects. We are an independent organization since 2014, our job is to produce and connect practices and critical analysis about cultural transformations.
The Open Society Foundations, founded by George Soros, are the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights. It supports a vast array of projects in more than 120 countries, providing thousands of grants every year.
