Let's help us to create women leaders of the future!

About Academy

The main goal of this project is to empower Czech women through a series of specially developed trainings aimed at the most valuable skills needed for pursuing leadership positions, particularly in business or politics. Each lesson will be held by experts - the best in their respective fields. We do not aim to have one-sided communication; our aim is to create a community of women who will share their experience and ideas with each other.

How will we do it?

  • By transferring best practices and know-how from the U.S.
  • By building a strong global community of women
  • By creating role models in the Czech society based on U.S. practices

Our program

Through a six-month educational programme ambitious women will focus on self-realization in every aspect of their careers. The lessons will take place once a month at the American Spaces in four Czech cities: Praha, Plzeň, Brno and Ostrava simultaneously online for registered participants. Our focus is on providing practical experience, not only theoretical knowledge. Upon completion, alumni will receive a digital graduation certificate.

For who is the Academy?

The Academy is focused on women, 20-55 years old who have professional and personal ambition and are high-achieving in their fields.

Why the name “Ženský byznys”?

Our goal was to express that the Academy is a purely women's "affair". As a result, we chose the name "women's business" but in the Czech language. However, this does not mean the program is solely intended for women in the business field. It is for everyone!

Who is behind the project?

The project was initiated by the Institute of Political Marketing (IPM) and receives support from the Embassy of the United States of America in the Czech Republic. This support was granted as one of the priorities of American foreign policy is to support gender equality and strengthening the role of women in society.
