The Women Take the Lead Network was initiated by DEDI in 2020. The aim is to promote women’s equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision making in political, economic and public life. Traditionally, women have had less opportunities in professional networking than men, and this is considered to be a factor hindering women to rise in their careers.
