The poll of Hospodářské noviny TOP Women of the Czech Republic in 2021 found its winners. This year’s golden prize went to Simona Kijonková, CEO of Packeta Group and founder and co-owner of Zásilkovna. She won the award in the Female Entrepreneur category. The aim of the project is to promote successful women from the private and public sphere. This year’s 17th edition was thematically focused on diversity and female leadership.
More About the Project
The stories of successful women who are nominated for the TOP Women of the Czech Republic poll each year are shared with the intention to inspire their followers and also to draw attention to topics such as equal employment opportunities and women in decision-making positions. The project drew attention to women who have changed the Czech Republic and its public or business sphere in 2021.
When making the final selection, the expert jury evaluates the nominated women according to their influence, performance, business story and social contribution of the companies or institutions in which they are involved, as well as their private activities.
” Last year was incredibly challenging for me. I appreciate the award all the more for this unusual COVID year. But I would be nothing without my amazing team. I thank Hospodářské noviny for popularizing all the successful and inspiring women and sharing their stories, and congratulations to all the award-winning ladies,” says Simona Kijonková, CEO of Packeta Group and founder and co-owner of Zásilkovna.
