Even though I am not leader myself I have gained a lot of useful tips how to navigate within different environments and situations which are occurring on daily basis and which one will face in the future. Hearing inspirational speakers, working with my mentor and getting new connections from the local market also helped to decide and move back to Czechia after couple of years abroad. Thank you to the all facilitators and organizers for all your hard work.

I was inspired by the drive other women in the program had to learn and grow and to see that the things we are dealing with are often similar no matter our background and that we can learn a lot from each other.

I am glad I joined the Femme Palette Leadership Program. It´s a great and unique opportunity to meet many inspiring people from a variety of disciplines and areas. Very open atmosphere and good organization provided by the FP team. It was the right step for me in order to move myself and also my career forward.
Charlota Blunárová
Design Lead
I was very excited after the first chemistry session with Alice, during which she talked about her experience from London, returning to Czechia, and starting in a new work environment. Alice’s story felt like a sneak peek into my own future and allowed me to visualize my prospective career. It showed me what elements of my current life I can replicate in another cultural or professional context.
Katerina Grebenova

The possibility to participate in Femme Palette Leadership program came just in time when I decided to move forward in my career. By all means, all the perks of this program (workshops with respected lecturers on topics that matter for leaders, our group discussions and precise match with my mentor) helped me to navigate throughout my first months as a manager and leader.

Thanks to the program, I had the opportunity to meet many interesting women, share and develop my experience in the field of leadership and inspire each other. I appreciate not only the interesting Workshops, but also the tailor-made mentoring, which gave me the opportunity to solve current problems, but also the long-term strategy and direction of the team. Simply perfect :)
