In March 2024, the LEADER region Elsbeere Wienerwald was all about women. The “Women’s Power in the Wienerwald” project aimed to strengthen women in the regional economy and create a strong network. Through a combination of regional public relations work and various themed events, we made women in business more visible!

At the heart of the project were four in-house events that were specially designed to network and promote women in business:
