International Women's Day means different things to different people. For some it's a celebration, for others it's a call to action to accelerate gender parity, and for many it's an opportunity to make a positive difference through their actions.
Whatever your objective, join us in celebrating the accomplishments of women worldwide and to discuss milestones of the future that we will face!
On our panel will feature the participation of some women and men (IE alumni and IE students) at different professional stages, to discuss the real challenges and of course successes that they have experienced.

Paula Aranegui

Business Developer - Spain & Portugal


I´ve been working in the Media Industry for more than ten years now, where my curiosity about Internet Services quickly arose. Passionate about New Technologies, both personal and professional, I had the luck of being part of Meetic Group (IAC/MATCH Group), after other native digital media background, managing online and mobile acquisition channels and partnerships. I became Meetic´s Spain&Portugal Business Developer in September this year, based in Madrid. My challenge now is bring growth the Company through other ways besides our core business, and of course, empower singles to make significant connections. As a women, I strongly believe in our leadership capabilities and our will to change things from the inside.
