Role, Strength, Impact of European Networks in Realizing the Political Priorities of President Juncker According to the priorities communicated by President Juncker, this European conference aims to focalize its attention to the role of European networks and their methods to cooperate in the realization of European policies and priorities for the 2020 objectives. European networks are usually composed by associations, public bodies and small and medium sized enterprises. Representatives of European networks have been invited to discuss how they operate and promote European policies and how this could represent an advantage for the democratic participation of citizens to the aim of creating more Europe and more unity in Europe. In this sense, the presence of political-institutional members is particularly precious in informing and defining how European Institutions support the European networks and how European policies benefit from the activity of the European networks. The conference is also a chance to involve associations with the aim of stimulating networking and the creation of new European networks. Our conference will give result especially to three priorities : 1.Jobs, Growth, Investment 2. Justice and Fundamental Rights 3. Digital Single Market It is also an opportunity to know how platforms and networks can be funded. The conference, in cooperation with ALL LADIES LEAGUE, will be closed by a representative of the Indian network to get a perspective at International Level.

ALL LADIES LEAGUE (www.aall.in) ALL is the world’s largest All-inclusive international women’s chamber and a movement for the Welfare, Wealth, and Wellbeing of ALL. ALL (our all-inclusive acronym) is the only global network in the world to have free membership with the only requirement being for each woman to bring in abundant positive energy and a will to do. The only golden rule is a “zero negativity” policy. For the balance, we delight in diversity and encourage each one to lead with one’s own passion and pursuits. The acronym ALL stands for our mind set and culture of loving outreach to ALL to foster local and global cultural shifts toward seeing ALL as One. ALL is a labour of love to connect up women of the world in a spirit of sisterhood so that we can co-create a culture of sharing and caring in ALL walks of life. ALL is a worldwide web of women’s leadership in all spheres of life, across all strata of society, encompassing all cultures and faiths, and spanning all fields of industry and enterprise. With over 375+ chapters across the world, ALL is creating multiple channels of communication and collaboration to enable greater leadership by women so that they can express their unique vision and energy in all fields, bringing more balance and harmony in all walks of life and also actualizing in the process women’s capacity to create and influence. ALL is the fastest growing worldwide web of women to focus on enhancement of women’s leadership in ALL fields through their Inclusion, Inspiration and Innovation. With hundreds of chapters across the world from Mumbai to Morocco, women in the ALL network collaborate in diverse ways, be it for personal networking, expanding customer base, incubating start-ups, hiring for their companies, doing programs in sector-specific areas, or even catching a movie with a fun group, rallying resources for a crisis, and last but not the least even generating credible references for marriages of kith and kin! This real time exchange occurs across hundreds of whatsapp groups, monthly meets, and chapter initiatives and it keeps expanding and spiralling as new women keep joining by referral of members. The impact is in terms of more confidence, many more connections, and multiple possibilities of collaboration.
