Outstanding week for Choice Foundation!
As we participated in the ‘Women Empower Business’ photo exhibition at Women Deliver 2016 in Copenhagen, we had the opportunity to talk to HRH Crown Princess Mary about our projects in Vietnam.
From 17-19 May Butler’s Choice and Choice Foundation participated in the photo exhibition “Women Empower Business” at the Women Deliver 2016 conference in Bella Center. The Photo exhibition arranged by DI, Confederation of Danish Industry was to illustrate how a number of Danish companies help to promote women’s rights in developing countries.
HRH Crown Princess Mary opened the exhibition. The other speakers included: Kristian Jensen, Minister for Foreign Affairs; Karsten Dybvad, general director at The Confederation of Danish Industry and Katja Iversen, CEO, Women Deliver.
The eight selected companies were Butler’s Choice, Danfoss, Cheminova, Orana, Aiayu, Toms Group, Froosh and AAK. And the amazing photos were taken by photographer Stine Heilmann.
During the opening of the photo exhibition ‘Women Empower Business’ HRM Crown Princess Mary showed a great interest while speaking to the founders of Choice Foundation: Helle Stokkebye Johansen and Jacob Stokkebye.
And there was great interest among the other visitors at the conference as well.
Just a few hours before going to Copenhagen to join the opening of the Danish photo exhibition ‘Women Empower Business’ the day started with a radio interview on DR P4 Fyn with co-founder of Choice Foundation, Helle Johansen.
Among other things, she talked about our purpose, the importance, and the benefits in participating in this great exhibition for both Butler’s Choice and Choice Foundation.
The work of Butler’s Choice in this area, and the work of Choice Foundation, is represented as one of the eight selected exhibitors. The exhibition will take place in Bella Center during the conference and then go on a tour of Denmark: Billund Airport, Aalborg Airport, the Concert Hall in Esbjerg, Fredericia Exhibition Center, Concert Hall Alsion in Sønderborg, Lundsgaard Gods in Kerteminde and the House of Industry in Copenhagen.
