"This partnership underscores our commitment to cultivating an inclusive environment where individuals of all genders can thrive and contribute to innovation.s We believe that this is a distinctive aspect in our company’s DNA." 

    Silvia Heredia Minthorne de Kläner also emphasized the value of diversity by stating, "Viewing diversity as a potential rather than a challenge is key. By embracing diverse perspectives and experiences, we can drive creativity, collaboration, and productivity, as numerous studies show. It also enhances the company's reputation and team cohesion, leading to greater attractiveness as an employer and reduced turnover." 

    "We are excited to partner with LucaNet to further our mission of empowering women in technology," said Anna Radulovski, CEO and Founder of WomenTech Network. "By joining forces, we can create meaningful pathways for women to excel in tech careers and contribute to building inclusive workplaces globally."

Together, their aim is to foster a more inclusive and diverse environment within the industry. 

    The partnership kicked off with an in-person networking event in Bucharest on May 14, titled "Decoding Success: Strategies for Thriving in Fast-Paced Environments." Participants who joined the event learned techniques for overcoming imposter syndrome and maintaining an agile mindset in dynamic project settings without sacrificing quality or timelines.
