About the organizers

The Leopolda Wild Foundation

A key mission of the Foundation is to invest in the development of exceptional educational programs for youth in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and leadership development fields. The Foundation creates programs and initiatives that support entrepreneurship and the use of modern technologies while promoting sustainable development in Poland and around the world.

It was the dream of the founder of the Leopolda Wild Foundation to establish a foundation in the name of her great-grandmother, Leopolda Wild, who was born in 1886 near Lviv, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Leopolda, convinced of the power of education and entrepreneurship, was a pioneer who inspired generations of women with her achievements.

Embassy of Israel

Ever since its inception, Israel has been committed to supporting girls’ and women’s empowerment and equality. It actively supports and promotes solutions to this problem worldwide, understanding that the equal status of women and men is a fundamental human rights issue.

Israeli women have distinguished themselves over the years as leaders in diplomacy, politics, law, science, medicine, mediation and culture, and Israel, through its embassies around the world, has supported United Nations’ initiatives for girls and women since the beginning of the UN. And while Israel, like many societies, still faces challenges in addressing gender equality issues, significant progress has been made in recent years toward this important goal.

At the Embassy of the State of Israel in Poland, we believe that it is of utmost importance to initiate and support projects that give girls opportunities to develop and confidence in their ability to be leaders in their communities. We will continue to strive to engage our international and local partners to help achieve full and real equality in all aspects of girls’ lives in Israel, Poland and around the world.
