HISTORY OF THE BUSINESS WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION
The Business Women’s Association was established in Lithuania on 21 December 2015. The memorandum was signed by six persons: Dr. Dalia Foigt-Norvaišienė, Vaida Balčiūnienė, Alma Ziziliauskienė, Rima Ingstad, Edita Mackevičienė and Svetlana Zilinskienė.
The need to establish an official organization emerged after engagement in a club activity of several years, when ties with similar organizations in foreign countries were established; also the need to participate in projects fostering women’s entrepreneurship and self-education, share experience with starting business women emerged.
Business owners and top-level executives are invited to become members of the Association. They may participate in activities as natural persons or represent a legal entity.
