The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 162 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

EAWF Retreat Lounge. Continuous Development: A Choice or a Necessity for Women Leaders?
2 September 2021
In the new economy, continuous self-improvement is a key to success, and it is no longer enough for a modern person to possess previously acquired knowledge, as contextual and cross-contextual skills need to be continuously learned, updated and developed. Access to lifelong learning is essential for everyone, but it can be difficult for women in particular given their typical family obligations to find the time and opportunity for lifelong professional development. In an environment where competencies are rapidly renewed, even a minor interruption in work has the consequence of a loss of professional relevance, lack of career progression and reduced pay. The pandemic and self-isolation proved once again that the best way to invest is in one's own growth, and it is women in senior or self-employed positions who have the opportunity to invest the most in their own development. How do we learn to learn for professional development, and how can we make lifelong learning accessible to all? What projects are needed to increase educational opportunities for women?
