A facebook group for women in business worldwide.

I just founded a new group on Facebook named “Global Women at Work”.

The purpose of this group is to discuss work related topics among working women around the world. Interaction and beneficial discussions are very welcome. The group is for women who want to make a difference at work. Who want nothing less than help to make our world a better place! Women who want to share – their knowledge, experience, excitement and success but also their fear, hope, thoughts and many questions – about their own work situation. The group is also for discussing work environment and leadership topics in general.It should be a welcoming place for ALL working women, not just for successful leaders but also for women who just started their career or who are facing changes and difficulties. It should to be a global network for women supporting, consulting and mentoring each other.
A network for sharing, learning and teaching. A network beyond countries, languages, politics, religion and status.

That’s my dream – nothing more but nothing less!

If you want to be a part of the group, please got to Facebook and join us here:
