“As corporate members of LEAD Network and playing an active role locally, we strongly believe that actions speak louder than words and strive continuously to create the gender equity necessary in the work place to bring about equality between the sexes in society as a whole. We wholeheartedly agree with and actively support the LEAD Network’s vision that the advancement of women in leadership roles is necessary to face actual business challenges. After all the valuable work which our LEAD Network Turkish Chapter has put in over recent years, I am happy and proud to announce that next year’s event is to be held in our home city of Istanbul, Turkey. For those of you who have already visited this wonderful place, I am sure this will be a welcome opportunity to return and for those of you who haven’t, it is about time you sampled our food, culture, and history at the meeting point of Europe and Asia. ”
