Spaces Herengracht hosted its first Women In Business breakfast meeting with Spaces tenant Facebook, who had generously put on a continental breakfast for all of the attendees and speakers. The cause of the event was in celebration of International Women’s Day. It was the first time many of the women in attendance had celebrated the important event, which promotes the socio-economic, political and cultural equality of the sexes, celebrating the achievements of women and girls around the world.
The Women In Business breakfast meeting featured two inspirational speakers, Kirsten Toeset of De Klein Keuken, and Karen Timmer of Make A Wish Nederland. They shared their experiences of working in business and some of both the positive and negative experiences and challenges they have faced in their professional lives. It was a stimulating, thought provoking event, one which will definitely remain a feature on the Spaces events calendar for some time to come.
