Mercedes Wullich is a journalist and entrepreneur. She was born in Argentina, and has been living in Spain for the last 14 years where she developed several projects related to women within the framework of diversity, visibility and access to power.
She is the funder and director of Mujeres&Cía, and in terms of communication and ranking she is amongst the top 100 Women Leaders in Spain – her last initiative was the top 100 Women Friendly Entrepreneurs, a ranking that aims to highlight those companies in which women chose to work, and EngageMEN, a platform to engage men in the change of a society in which women have access to decision-making positions.
She is the author of “Seis mujeres, seis voces, otra mirada sobre la mujer y el poder”, in her regular column “Todavía no llegué y ya tengo que irme” she often speaks about Planeta Varón, an out-dated planet, that still exists in the society, in companies, but only in cultural inertia and peoples’attitudes.
She is convinced in the need to accelerate the change and that if we got here with a turbulent world led by men, it is time for women to take part in the decisions.
She believes in change and the act of giving back, and education is key to eradicate stereotypes and normalize the presence of women in all areas.
This is her daily fight, a personal and non-transferable one. And she believes that without men the journey will be harder and longer.
