We are delighted to announce that the Hungarian Business Leaders Forum (HBLF) is joining EWOB’s network of like-minded associations as a local partner. Together, we will work on fostering gender balance in leadership in Hungary and across Europe.
HBLF is a non-profit organisation, established in 1992 on the initiative of King Charles III. The purpose of the organisation is to promote social responsibility and to support Hungary’s sustainable social and economic development. The organisation acts as an important catalyst in the business environment. Through initiating innovative and impactful programs, sharing best practices and building strong community & alignment to progress with the changes.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the Hungarian Business Leaders Forum, a renowned organisation regularly launching new pioneering initiatives for women in leadership. We look forward to seeing the fruits of our joint efforts in driving diversity and in particular gender balance in leadership.” – Silvia Wiesner, EWOB Local Partnerships and Membership Committee Chair
HBLF has been the exclusive representative of the EU Diversity Charter in Hungary since 2016. Diversity and inclusion at the workplace, equal opportunity and women’s participation in leadership are its priority themes. HBLF Women Leaders Forum (since the mid 2000’s) and the award-winning HBLF International X Mentor Programme (since 2017), have been launched to support the network and development of female leaders.
In response to the 2022 EU Women on Boards Directive, HBLF launched the HBLF X Mentor Executive Programme, supporting candidates for board roles. In addition to mentoring, the programme provides premium workshops focusing on various aspects of what it means to be a board member.
“The partnership with European Women on Boards reinforces Hungarian Business Leaders Forum’s mission to support the sustainable development of the country by leveraging the power of diversity. Joining forces on an international level offers more opportunities and opens more doors – for everyone”. – Andrea Istenes Solti, President of the HBLF
