“It is difficult to overestimate the role of women in wartime – they fight at the front on an equal footing with men, work, contribute to the army, engage in business, raise children. But in the years after the war, we are indebted to women for the restoration of the national economy. Women entrepreneurs will be the driving force of the reconstruction of the country as a whole. Today, women in Ukraine are ready to become the best entrepreneurs and leading leaders. What is required from the society and the state is to support them financially, physically and psychologically, this is what we can do with Diia.Business, Diia.Digital education, IT-generation, etc. projects” Valeria Ionan, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine for European Integration, stated this.
