“Women Friendly NGO Award” to TOBB

01.03.2021 / Ankara

The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu was awarded the “Women Friendly NGO Award” at the Women Leaders of Turkey Award Ceremony organized by Dünya Newspaper and held digitally.​

TOBB Vice President Tamer Kıran attended the ceremony on behalf of TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu. Kıran read Hisarcıklıoğlu's message.

TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu's message is as follows;

“Dear women entrepreneur sisters, I salute you all. As you become increasingly involved in business, I see for myself that our country is getting stronger.

With your achievements in every aspect of life, you show where you are and that you deserve to go even farther. Because an economy where a woman's hand is untouched can't grow. The mentality that leaves her out can't move forward.

That's why we said our women can do anything. With this vision, we established our Women Entrepreneur Councils in 81 provinces. With more than 7,000 woman entrepreneur members now, we have become the largest women's professional organization. At the same time, we have doubled the number of women entrepreneurs.

Our Women Entrepreneurs Council has also brought forth a very important woman leader. Ruhsar Pekcan has become our Trade Minister.

TOBB and our Women Entrepreneurs Council will always stand with you moving forward. Once again, I would like to express my gratitude to all our women who fought day and night for themselves, their families, their countries.

I congratulate Dünya Newspaper for bringing this beautiful event to life. Acting with the right vision, they say that ingenuity demands compliment. At the same time, they bring our successful women to the forefront, introduce them and make them role models for our young people.

I am proud of our women who have achieved great success in business, politics, science, education, culture, art and sports. I'm proud of all of our leading women who have been awarded the prize. I congratulate each and every one of you and wish you continued success."
