We create a community for women who lead!
We connect and educate women to access their full potential for career growth. We aim for changes to include and equally represent women in our society.
How are we doing it?
- transferring best practices and know-how from the U.S.
- building a strong global community of women
- creating role models in the Czech society based on U.S. practices
In 2021, we launched a six-month educational program for women aimed at soft and hard skills development. We worked with external experts to deliver a series of workshops covering topics like developing confidence in self-promotion, the art of negotiating, how to build a network for career growth, public speaking or how to put together a business plan.
We plan to launch the next cohort in February 2023.
What is our goal?
The main goal of the Academy is to increase gender equality in the Czech Republic and eliminate unequal work conditions. This project is designed to be an important step in the gradual change of society in terms of the gender pay gap. Our training program will help women increase self-confidence, share their experiences and successful practices, in hopes of creating future role-models and leaders in their respective positions.

In six months, 6,000 ambitious women completed a career skill development program. We were meeting online and in person once a month in four Czech cities: Praha, Plzeň, Brno, Ostrava. Our focus was on providing practical experience, not only theoretical knowledge. Upon completion, all alumni received a digital graduation certificate.

Why the name “Ženský byznys”?
We wanted to express that it's our 'business' to take care of any changes we want to see in the society (“ženský bysnys” means “women's business”). Our activities are for women that want to connect with and learn from other women regardless if they are in business or not!
