The UIA Women’s Network

The UIA women's network was born several years ago out of a desire to bring together members of the association at each congress to hear from an exceptional woman or an organization.

We have thereby had the chance to meet and discuss with:

  • Yasmeen HASSAN Global Director of Equality Now – United States (NY) (May 2014)
  • Catherine COTSAKI President of the Hellenic Association of Mediation - Greece Athens (September 2014)
  • Mireia LOPEZ MONTOYA BVLGARI Managing Director Accessories Business Unit- Italy – Florence (October 2014)
  • Martina GALLARZA Professor at the University of Valencia, teaching marketing and consumer attitudes – Spain - Valencia – (October 2015)
  • Maria Paula MILHEIRAO Senior Partner at the Portuguese law firm SRS – Portugal - Lisbon (September 2016)
  • Chair of the Bar Elina FRAGA Portugal Lisbon (September 2016)
  • Marta FULOP Professor of Social Psychology in Hungary - Budapest (October 2016)

These meetings are also a great networking opportunity for our members. They allow us to strengthen our ties during congresses, to learn more about our respective professional practices and to maintain contact between congresses via social networks. They also facilitate involvement in the committees and working groups, public speaking, and the integration of newer members by older members, who can assist them in taking part.

The network is led by Françoise HECQUET, Co-ordinator of the UIA Womens’ Network and Ana MASIOTA, Maria CRONIN, Ángela DIAZ-BASTIEN, Anne-Carole CREMADES.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event and are at your disposal!
