Press Release 07:12 - 18 November 2023
Consulco Group has honored the women who ‘fight’ in the business arena, as well as in all aspects of life every day, with a special event - a tribute to female entrepreneurship.
The event was held on the occasion of Women's Entrepreneurship Day, in the presence of the Commissioner for Gender Equality, Josie Christodoulou, and US Ambassador Julie D. Fisher, with the speakers highlighting the need to integrate the principles of equality in every aspect of the operation of organisations and businesses operating in Cyprus.
Speaking at the event, Christodoulou, congratulated Consulco on the initiative and analysed the role of women in business today. According to Christodoulou, despite important steps being taken, discrimination and inequalities remain and there is great room for progress.
In her address, Ambassador Fisher, thanked Consulco for the invitation to visit its offices, which are adjacent to the US Embassy, while referring to the policies implemented by the US to encourage and empower female entrepreneurship.
On his part, the CEO of Consulco Marios Hajiroussos highlighted that the event was dedicated to the women of Consulco who contribute daily to the evolution and development of the company, but also to all the women who make life better.
It is worth noting that on the sidelines of the event, the unveiling of a statue of the female figure, created by the well-known Cypriot artist, Panagiotis Spanos, took place. The statue was placed in the reception area of Consulco's headquarters in Nicosia, in a move that, as noted by the company, symbolises the important role and further strengthening of female entrepreneurship in our country.
