On Monday 30th August, Ambassador Marie Chatardová received the ‚Women of the Decade‘ award at the Women Economic Forum in London.

The award is given to women who are pioneers and leaders in their respective entrepreneurial and professional endeavours, with a distinctive voice and vision that inspires and innovates a new narrative of leadership in all walks of life. It is for those whose expertise and spirit can inspire and inform the next wave of more awakened and empowered leadership.

Women Economic Forum is a global conference platform brought by the ‚ALL Ladies League‘ to foster empowering conversations, connections and collaborations among women committed to contribute in all walks of life through enterprise, innovation, leadership, vision and voice.

During her tenure in New York, she served as the seventy-third President of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) - the UN's third highest organ and the institution at the heart of the UN's work to promote sustainable development.
