How to advocate in Brussels

Description
The ultimate goal of the project is to empower women business leaders to make their voice heard and assert their positions in a democratic manner. The long-term strategy is to create a network of like-minded business groups that can reach across borders and advocate for their legitimate interests in relation to the European institutions.
