Inauguration of Women in International Security Poland
On 20th of March 2018 in the building of Senat, higher chamber of the Polish Parliament we had the opportunity to host the inauguration session of WIIS Poland.
WIIS Poland is an affiliate of an international organisation that aims at empowering women invested in the fields of security and international relations, and supporting their professional and academic development. The event had the support of Minister Anna Maria Anders, Secretary of State in the Chancellery of Prime Minister and Plenipotentiary of the Prime Minister for the international dialogue, and Minister Renata Szczęch, Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of the Interior and Administration.
Minister Anders in her speech has underlined the role of women in the modern world, presenting her own experience in the international environment that she wishes to share with WIIS Poland members.
Words of Minister Renata Szczęch were as important, as she has focused on the dynamic increase in the participation of women in the uniformed services on many levels and in many aspects.
The inauguration was additionally an occasion to discuss the ways to support women in public life and chance to debate further programme framework.
