March 8. Our first edition.

It's no coincidence that we decided to publish the first edition of W Insight on March 8, on International Women’s Day 2018 (by the way, check #IWD2018 on Twitter to see how people around the world are celebrating this day). It’s also no coincidence that we call it an “edition” - we are starting with four interviews and we’re going to provide you with new, thoughtful interviews with brave women every month.

This month, we are featuring four incredible women of various ages and backgrounds, who share their paths and choices with you. One of them, at 18, learned that half the world doesn’t have access to toilets and how – as a result – girls in developing countries drop out of school when they reach puberty. She offered a simple, but smart idea to address the problem. The toilet that she and her team designed has been tested in Kenya and Zambia. Jasmine Burton, a 25-year-old graduate of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a manager at the Toilet Board Coalition in Geneva, is sharing her advice with women striving to make a positive change in the world.

Another great inspiration comes from the President of Virgin Mobile CEE. Grazyna Piotrowska-Oliwa, who is sharing her advice on choosing a career path, building a coherent personal brand and setting clear objectives. You cannot have it all – she says when asked about ambitious women wanting to win in every area of their lives.

We also interviewed Weronika Mliczewska, a cultural anthropology graduate and adventurer who traveled all over the world in the past several years, often experiencing risky situations. For W Insight she explains what motivates her and gives her energy to follow a non-traditional career path.

In our fourth interview, the founder of a fashion brand ENNBOW and former investment banker, in a frank conversation with W Insight, evaluates her decision to start her own company and shares her advice with ambitious women considering a startup career.

An activist, a CEO, adventurer and an entrepreneur – these are our inaugural edition’s heroines. Let us know what you think about their stories. Share with us your opinion on Facebook.
