The European Network for Women Excellence identifies every european database aggregating excellent female professionals that have been selected through rigorous and transparent critierias. We want to put them in touch and to create a community of european organizations focused on filling the gender gap in media and in conferences all around Europe. Our platform spreads the word about the efforts of these organizations through targeted campaign on european scale.
We believe it is essential to offer a female point of view on the world because the only interpretation given by now has came from a male point of view. We believe that women’s contribution will be determining in the building of a better society. “If what we see and read and hear are men’s voices, men’s perspectives, men’s news [then] women continue to be framed as passive observers rather than active citizens.” (Karen Ross, Cynthia Carter, Women And News: A Long And Winding Road, Media, Culture & Society33(8), Sage Publications, 2011, pp.1148-1165)
Ultimately, we want to build a network of databases that gather names of female professional selected through the principles of merit, experiences and skills, in order to create a european community of excellences whose authority is undebatable and that is founded on the mobility potential in Europe of this professionals and the will to support new generations of women.
