The Ciudad Real municipality of Bolaños de Calatrava has inaugurated, this Wednesday, the II Networking Breakfast, in which women entrepreneurs and businesswomen from Campo de Calatrava have participated, an initiative in which the Bolaños Women’s Center has collaborated. The day has been the scene of exchange of experiences and reflections on being an enterprising woman and businesswoman in rural areas.
The institutional event was presented by the Mayor of Bolaños, Miguel Ángel Valverde, who was accompanied by the Councilor for Women, Angelines de Toro; the director of the Business Development area of the Chamber of Commerce, Mayte Carmona; the Business Dynamization technician of the Chamber of Commerce, Elena Moraleda; and the manager of AD Campo de Calatrava, Carlos Corella, among others.
These conferences, framed within the commemorative events of 8-M, are developed within the framework of the ‘Dinamiza Calatrava’ project, led by the Ciudad Real Provincial Council, which promotes the business fabric of depopulated areas in the province, as reported by the Consistory in a press release.
In this line, Valverde has been “surprised” by the important acceptance that the activity has had. “The fact that it is women who have undertaken has an added value, since the real equality that we seek is not yet complete.”
In the same way, he has demanded “initiatives by the Administrations that really favor the subjection of the population in the rural world with more favorable fiscal policies”. Thus, he has assured that Ciudad Real is the second province at the national level with the most depopulation and “Bolaños is no stranger, for which entrepreneurial activities such as this one are appreciated, which generate the opportunities that are needed in rural areas.”
After the inauguration, the ‘Feel-Good’ talk-workshop took place, by the Secretary of the Women Castilla-La Mancha Association, Francisca Moya, to share experiences and knowledge, and promote female entrepreneurship and encourage vocation.
Finally, the cycle of activities has concluded with the intervention of Ana María Sánchez, in the mindfulness workshop for entrepreneurs ‘The greatest advance is to stop’, with the teaching of exercises whose habitual practice “contributes to the well-being of the women who practice it ”.
