How we started
“A-list women“ project in 2014, conducted a survey in cooperation with the Faculty for Media and Communication in Belgrade with support of Elle magazine and Atlantic Group, involving 2000 participants from different fields (middle and top level corporate structure) with the goal to examine obstacles in their career development and promotion.
Conclusion was women complete three times more tasks including housework and family obligations, lack of networking and solidarity between women, double standards for women and men.
“Women A-list” forum in October 2014 gathered 100 influential women from different fields, where the need for creating an organisation for the economic empowerment of women was strongly identified.
In January 2016, AFA association with support of the Embassy oF US in Belgrade, launched a platform “AFA network” in order to make the platform accessible to all women.
