WIL Presents. 2020: Challenges, Opportunities & Mental Health

October 30, 2020 | ‒

On October 30, AmCham female (and quite a few males!) members and members of the AmCham Estonia WIL group gathered at Radisson Blu Sky Hotel for the second in-person Women in Leadership networking speaker luncheon of 2020!

This time, the topic focused on the unprecedented year of 2020 and all the challenges, and opportunities it has offered so far and is still offering. Also, this time we focused more on the importance of mental health and emphasized the need for taking the time for yourself, especially women, who juggle so many different roles in their lives!

The event started with a very special video that included several messages from the female executives across the Amchams in Europe network. The event continued with a panel discussion featuring Asta Sakalauskaite from Philip Morris, who joined us virtually, as well as Anne Samlik (Estravel AS), Michael Burich (Synctuition OÜ), and Kate Gridneva (Sakala Eragümnaasium MTÜ). The panel discussion was moderated by the one and only Megan Riley, representing MLR Strategies.

We would like to thank our Premium Partners and WIL event sponsors Microsoft Estonia, EKLT OÜ (Service Partner for UPS), and Datel AS for your help and support! Also, a special thank you goes to event in-kind sponsors Chemi-Pharm (DDifference branch) and Ekspress Meedia and Anne&Stiil , as well as Synctuition OÜ for the support and wonderful gifts for our participants!

We would also like to thank Radisson Blu Sky Hotel and their team for their hospitality! We wish you all the best and look forward to being back in 2022, after the renovation!

We truly hope that you enjoyed the event and discussion! We encourage you to stay strong and take time for yourself! Don’t underestimate the importance of mental self-care, and the fact that despite all the challenges that life may bring along, it still also offers many unique opportunities!

Stay safe and healthy, and remain positive!
