In this equal right, women have power to run our ways, in general peaceful and prosperous. Women have equality to deserve honors and to be recognized".
The female Ambassadors, despite from 5 countries, share the common initiative in Vietnam to create and build up a platform and network for all women to meet, make friends, share their initiatives and seek for their opporttunity of developing themselves.
"This is a networking of female influences and it doesn’t matter where you are a director, or a student as long as you have something to say, to share, you are most welcomed. You will find here people representing the government, the business community, science and technology and social organizations of Vietnamese. And, also for from general prospectives, it is not very diversed, but if you look at people at the presentation here, there are higher amount of diversities and the whole idea is that we together build a network when we can find each other for socializing but also for business pursposes. And it is initiative matching these existing all boy networks everywhere in the world and in Vietnam. So we decided we should build the new girls network and do what men do very well from business to socializing", said Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Elsbeth Akkerman.
"I can do and you can do well, be Ambassador yourself one day".
