High-Performing Women Reaching Senior Management Positions

Whatever a man can do, can a woman do it and even better? Women are considered a weaker vessel in the society, many experiencing sexual harassment and discrimination, just because they are women. I think it is time to acknowledge the fact many women are doing equally or better than men in whatever profession they represent in the society today.

The 6th Annual European E-Commerce Conference which took place last year November 18, 2014, brought many speakers from the commerce sector, including Susanne Czech, secretary General, EMOTA, Antti Peltomaki, Deputy Director General, DG ENTR, European, Vicky Ford, Chair Internet Market and Consumer Protection, Tod Cohen etc; the Vice President and Deputy General Counsel of Global Government Relations, Ebay to give talks.
