Women Who Inspire: Seven local heroines tell their tales


Women Who Inspire is a women’s network in Brussels established in 2019, that aims to promote and encourage women to public speaking.

WWI will be organizing different conferences throughout the year, inviting women from different backgrounds and fields to share their inspirational stories on stage.

Seven women will take over the stage to share their stories on 29 March 29th, 2019 at the Le Renaissance Brussels Hotel. Seven women entrepreneurs and leaders will come to share their inspiring stories, as a belated celebration of International Women’s Day.

The backgrounds of our speakers revolve around different sectors. Ground-breaking entrepreneurs, political activists and feminists, artists and leaders. There is something these inspirational women all share in common: they are all warriors and continue to inspire us in our own modern lives. 

“This is a moment that we have never seen before – there is women’s movement happening all over the world right now. I want to be part of it by giving the opportunity to every woman who wants to share her story to inspire other women. For the occasion I invited seven local heroines, women based in Brussels. You will be surprised about what their stories are about,” said the organizer Viridiana Alverde.

The programme consists of the following:
