Women of success - the project took place in Poland in Podkarpacie.
Success Manager of Podkarpacie "is a project created by women for women. We are all involved in professional, social and family life. Each of us is trying to reconcile all roles with us, at the same time constantly caring for continuous individual and professional development. It is not always easy, because the day has only 24 hours. There are many such active women in Poland. We decided to get to know them starting with Podkarpackie Province.
Podkarpacie is a unique place in many respects. Voivodship, which from year to year is dynamically developing in the field of tourism and entrepreneurship.
That's what captivates in Podkarpacie, it is a fact that progress and innovation do not displace culture and traditions which are important for the inhabitants of the region. Unfortunately, in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship, women are only 32% of top management. Great Britain, unlike Poland, more effectively copes with the problems that most often affect women: the lack of appropriate qualifications, lack of skills to reconcile work and family life, inadequate offer of training.
We wanted to look at the methods developed in the Great Britain and use these experiences with us. We have reached women who each day manifest their femininity through effective and diligent fulfillment of their tasks. We met those who reconciled many roles and are fulfilling professionally.
With them and for them, we have created a research program that allowed to define the necessary managerial competences in the tourism industry and we have developed a training and consulting program, thus initiating an open discussion regarding the profile and qualifications of a woman in a management position in HORECA.
