Welcome to PWN Lisbon!

What is PWN Lisbon?

PWN Lisbon is a portuguese branch of PWN Global. PWN Global is a unique off-line and online networking and learning community for women and companies seeking to promote and encourage the professional progress of women.




Neste contexto que todos atravessamos, originado pelo novo  Coronavírus (COVID-19), a PWN Lisbon informa que as suas atividades correntes serão provisoriamente canceladas ou, em casos a identificar, reenquadradas em possível participação online, numa medida de prevenção e em total alinhamento com as recomendações da Direção-Geral da Saúde para uma maior contenção face a eventos e encontros sociais. 

A PWN Lisbon propõe-se, através dos seus diferentes programas, eventos e iniciativas de formação, networking e partilha de modelos de excelência, promover a construção de um sentido de liderança servidora; um estilo de gestão agregadora da diversidade; e um quadro de referências para o desenvolvimento da carreira nas suas diferentes etapas. Com esta visão, a PWN Lisbon procura diferenciar-se a partir de um propósito de promoção do desenvolvimento transversal da sociedade, da consolidação da cidadania e da conservação de uma arquitetura de valores.  

É em nome deste propósito que, com especial incidência neste momento, a PWN Lisbon assume todas as diligências como forma de se ajustar e garantir a resposta mais adequada a toda a comunidade.
