The opinion poll has been carried out within the project "Equal opportunities for successful careers"

Bucharest, 29th of June 2011 - Over 90% of the businesswomen consider they succeed in blending successfully their profession with personal life and can be a decision making factor that influences the organization or society. 45% of them declare they have encountered cases of discrimination at the workplace, while 95% think that the IT instruments are essential in career development.

These are the main conclusions of the survey carried out among the 300 participants in the program "Equal opportunities for successful careers", within the same name project developed by SIVECO Romania S.A., in partnership with Mediafax Agency and the Academy of Economic Studies Bucharest.

The majority of women interviewed consider that self-knowledge, continuous improvement and personal development represent important factors helping women in their career. On the other hand, the participants in the program have pointed out that work, ambition and competence are the basic ingredients of a successful career.

Nevertheless, although currently women in Romania are no longer complacent in anonymity, there is the preconceived idea which says that women get along bets in household activities. 45% of the women participating in the survey have stated they have been discriminated or have encountered cases of discrimination at the workplace, due to their ethnic origin, age, and because they are females.

The businesswomen participating in the survey have claimed that Romanian women succeed more and more to affirm themselves professionally through their own efforts, work and ambition, proving to those around them that it is indeed possible, to blend personal life with the professional one in a successful manner.

95% of the respondents have added that the training programs are very important for the professional career and that the IT instruments are vital in career development.

The survey has been conducted between 01.06.2011 - 23.06.2011, on a sample of 300 participants, aged between 25 and 50, from Cluj, Timişoara, Craiova and Iaşi.

The project is co-funded from the European Social Fund through the Sectorial Operation Program - Human Resources Development (POSDRU) and is taking place in the period of September 1, 2010 and August 31, 2012.
