WOMEN IN BUSINESS
Making a name for yourself in the business world is not easy; but for a woman, it can be especially challenging. Even though women make up 50.8% of the population, 60% of students receiving undergraduate degrees, and 44% of students receiving master’s degrees in business and management, these figures are not reflected in powerful positions in management. Only 4.6% of Fortune 500 CEO positions are held by women. In the finance, healthcare and social assistance industries, not a single CEO position is held by a woman. Yet, there are some game changers out there. Danela Arsovska, President of the Macedonian Chamber of Commerce, is one of them, and she is a perfect role model for women entrepreneurs.
Danela Arsovska is the President of Macedonian Chambers of Commerce, Chair of Macedonian Union of Employers’ Organizations, Macedonian Representative to the International Chamber of Commerce World Council, and Court Member of ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris. With over 15 years of management experience in the private sector, she is a leader of the Macedonian Business community. Danela is a strong advocate for women’s rights, one of the founders of the Macedonian Women Entrepreneurs Association, and an initiator of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the Macedonian business sector. She is member of the Economic Council of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia, as well as the National Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness Council of Republic of Macedonia.
