We have been active since the year 2003. Our first initiative was the project entitled “Compromise in the Labour Market – an innovative model of women’s professional activation,” implemented between 2005 and 2007 in Partnership with eight organisations from the Małopolska region – representing different sectors: NGOs, public administration, and private enterprises. The project idea was developed by a team of five women: Katarzyna Piecuch, Joanna Wojanowska, Sylwia Tałach–Kubas, Dominika Nowak and Magdalena Plewniak, all active professionally, and all mothers who experienced the difficulty of balancing work with family life, and who decided to do something about it – not just for themselves, but also for other parents in a similar situation. Since then, our Association has been successfully developing various actions aimed at increasing women’s participation in professional, social and public life; helping them to combine work with family; and, in more general terms, strengthening the potential of non-governmental organisations. To this day, we have assisted more than 1500 persons, 5000 organisations and businesses; we have successfully completed 12 projects.
In our work, we continue to search for the best ways to activate and support those who are the guardians of their dependants: children, elderly persons, persons with disabilities. We inspire other non-governmental organisations, companies, and individuals to implement solutions, which promote balance between the personal and professional aspects of life, and which advocate equal opportunities for women and men. We encourage everyone to formulate their own objectives, to take initiative, and pursue the things they are passionate about. Participants in our projects contribute to the creation of our institutional offer.
We support, consult, train, and inspire. We cooperate with organisations, institutions and enterprises throughout Poland. We value dialogue and partnership – we believe that together we can better understand and meet the needs of those whom we aspire to assist. Together, we can really make a difference.
