The International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC) has relaunched its European Network.
The move comes to encourage connection and collaboration, following the increasing volume of restructuring and insolvency cases, particularly those with a cross-border element.
IWIRC Europe is dedicated to promoting and connecting women in the restructuring and insolvency practice in Europe through educational programmes, conferences and networking events.
A joint event with IWIRC London will be held virtually on 29 April, and will focus on cross-border recognition.
The European Steering Committee is being led by co-chairs Jo Hewitt (London) and Rita Gismondi (Italy) with other practitioners from Spain (Manuela Serrano Sánchez and Beatriz Arnaldes Martínez), Switzerland (Antonia Mottironi), Germany (Nicole Stephan), Ireland (Gemma Freeman and Philippa Pierse) and the UK (Alison Goldthorp, Jennifer Maughan, Natalie Todd and Jenny Davidson).
In addition to planning a 2021 series of events, the steering committee’s initial tasks will be attracting new members and growing the European chapter with three new local European networks in the pipeline for 2021.
The goal is also to provide members with a European platform that gives practical opportunities for professional and personal development, including networking with contacts across Europe (and beyond) as well as leadership opportunities.
