WIL Activities


Since 2010, WIL Europe has been acting as a platform where senior level women can meet and exchange, network, enlarge their horizons, and identify opportunities and ideas that are not readily available in their current social and professional environments. We achieve our mission through international and local events, peer networking, core social and economic debates with key political and business leaders, and via our Women Talent Pool programme.

Events and Networking Sessions

WIL events which touch upon a diverse range of topics and offer our senior-level female Members, our Talents and Friends the opportunity to broaden their understanding and speak on a variety of pertinent issues, as well as to expand their horizons beyond their immediate working environment. Our events are always a great occasion for the participants to network and connect with one-another, as well as with other high-level decision makers.

    WIL Annual Gathering

    Each year, WIL Europe organizes a two-day Annual Gathering for its Members, Talents and Friends. The meeting takes place in a European capital and includes debates, networking sessions, training and workshops.

    This year, WIL Europe held its Annual Gathering in London, at AVIVA and the Westminster Palace on 15 and 16 May 2017 during which 14 speakers moderated discussions on digital transition, diversity in the workplace and career development for more than 60 participants. Find the report here.

    EU Breakfast Debates

    Three times a year, WIL Europe organizes EU Breakfast Debates in the European Parliament, hosted by WIL Board Member and MEP Pervenche Berès. Our debates attract a variety of leaders in the private, public and academic sectors and aim at providing insights for our members and friends on selected themes, allowing them to react, question and exchange in an open and stimulating environment. 

    The last EU Breakfast Debate, on 26 September 2017, featured Michel Barnier, the EU Chief Negotiator for Brexit and gathered around sixty participants to discuss the Brexit and Future of Europe.  Find the report here.

    Exclusive Executive Events

    The WIL network also organizes exclusive meetings for its members with opinion leaders and European political, economic, social and academic elites. 

    On 8 March 2016, some of our members were given the opportunity to meet and discuss with Emmanuel Macron, then Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital to discuss innovation, entrepreneurship and talent management, at the Ministry of Economy and Finance with the support of Women Equity for Growth.
