Adv. Eylem Şakir is an Award Winning International Property Lawyer, Serial Entrepreneur, Mentor and Speaker.

It is about having policies and systems that value and celebrate women's contributions, and reflect the reality of women's lives.

What words of encouragement would you like to share with women around the world?
I want to encourage women to believe that they can have it all. You can have your career, family and time for yourself. Work hard, be focused and constantly improve yourself. As Women we should connect and support each other. You will only achieve greatness when you know your self-worth and don’t forget your values become your destiny. Always follow your own path to achieve independence. Be creative, give back and liberate yourself from mediocrity.
Don’t wait for the right time- it always is the right time!
