Why we started Femme Palette
We started Femme Palette in 2018 to help women living in the Czech Republic grow their professional and personal network -- to become more entrepreneurial and empowered. We’ve heard stories of female professionals struggling to find similar women who want to talk about career advice, business ideas, challenges at work, or have motivating conversations. That’s why we decided to create a community of professional women and provide women a safe space to meet, build their network and learn from each other.
We’re proud to be the first diverse community for women in the Czech Republic. In just two years, 1,500+ women from 15+ countries and 20+ industries have joined our community. We’ve hosted 1,000+ attendees at our networking events and organized 25+ practical workshops on topics in Marketing, IT, Design, HR, and Entrepreneurship.
We’re helping women to advance in their careers by offering women 1-1 mentorship from experienced professionals and organizing programs focused on professional development. To date, we have matched over 350 women with their personal mentors.
