April 23rd – May 5th has been an exciting event season for GroYourBiz. After 9 days, 4 cities, 8536 kilometers, 216 hours and 2 ferries, I’m back in the office, inspired by all the women entrepreneurs and changemakers GroYourBiz met along the way.
The trip started off with GroYourBiz attending The Art of Disruption presented by Vital Voices and Embassy of Sweden Washington held at the House of Sweden on April 23rd in Washington, DC, with Ambassador Karin Ulrika Olofsdotter, who welcomed VV guests & Global Leadership winners. Ms. Olofsdotter shared the importance of Sweden becoming the first country in the world to launch a feminist foreign policy, applying a systematic gender equality perspective throughout the whole foreign policy agenda. The Swedish Handbook should be a “must” resource for international work relating to gender equality and all women’s and girls’ full enjoyment of human rights. The event also offered an extraordinary exhibit of world artists and women leaders who work together as activists and change-makers in their communities
