EWMD International e.V. to present “She made a difference” award to former European Commission Vice-President Viviane Reding


To mark the 30th anniversary in 2014, EWMD International e.V. will honour European Commission Vice-President Viviane Reding with the “She made a difference” award in Brussels on October 17, 2014.

Viviane Reding has been one of the prominent spokespersons for gender and diversity. You are cordially invited to join us in Brussels when we present the “She made a difference” award to Viviane Reding for her strategic approach and her outstanding commitment to this important topic.

The event will be an excellent opportunity to discuss with Viviane Reding about current topics on diversity beyond quota and encounter and interact with international members and guests in a personal and exclusive context.

 "Play global and make it happen local" - As a completely new approach and to increase the visibility of the Award Ceremony the event will be broadcasted on the internet. Remote participation in the discussion will be realized during the evening, when the regional contributions will be taken up during the Brussels discussion. EWMD chapters  participate in this global event regionally by meeting up in a local EWMD "public viewing" event and will be connected with the Brussels event on ewmd.org.
