Elena Smotrova presented "Tellus-Group" as a partner of the "Woman Leader" conference at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
Over the years, the international conference "Woman leader", initiated in 2015 by the Vice-President of the Leningrad regional chamber of Commerce and industry Elena Dyukareva, has become an integral part of the program of events within the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. As part of the global initiative to support women's entrepreneurship, career advancement of women and equal opportunities for business development, the idea of holding the Conference was actively supported by the government of the Leningrad region and the Chamber of Commerce and industry of the Russian Federation.
Over the five years of this project, the Conference was attended by thousands of women from dozens of countries, who proved that in the modern world, women are able to successfully solve the most complex problems – political, social, economic and business. The problems of achieving gender equality, ensuring conditions for the development of women's entrepreneurship and career growth, and the practice of implementing social projects raised at the "Woman Leader" Conference were reflected in the media and other public discussions. And the solutions to these problems found by experts during the meetings of the "Woman leader" Conference helped many women find answers to their questions.
It should be noted that the organizers of the Conference and its permanent head, Vice-President of the
LR CCI Elena Dyukareva, constantly find not only new topics for discussion, but also new forms of holding this event.
This time The conference "Woman Leader" was held in the format of a plenary "brainstorming session", which was attended by real celebrities of social activities, culture and business.
