Irene is communicator by nature, networker by passion.

I love traveling, learning new things and meeting people.

I am a business owner and Chief Executive Officer of a health care company; project manager of EU R&D&I projects; freelance PM; International director-at-large of the Lehigh Alumni Association; and leadership developer.

I have been lawyer, mediator; non-profit founder in the early childhood education; politician/public administrator; lecturer on international rights; president of a global network … and also dog trainer (German Shepherd my favorite breed).

Born in August, in Italy, on the island of Sicily, I love the sense of freedom gifted by the sea. The same feeling brought me to prefer motorcycle to cars.

I always lived in Italy but traveled a lot since 2008, when I started to collaborate with the program Global Village of the Iacocca Institute at Lehigh University, Pennsylvania. This program in the last 22 years brought 100 interns from 50 countries every year, building a network of more than 2000 people in 139 countries. Thanks to this network and my love for discovering cultures, places, and above all people, I have visited upward of 20 countries. It gave me also the opportunity to understand business challenges from a global perspective with a particular focus on India, Northern Europe, Eastern Europe, the United States.

In 2018 I got in touch with Mirela, who invited me to breakfast in New York in March, and there I had the chance to experience the energy of the Global Woman Club.

I have 11 years’ experience in networks, as just member, to being the president of the board of directors, and I immediately recognized the uniqueness of this group of fantastic, bright, visionary women: this club is not a place, it is the people, and where those people stand is the place.

We are the place. Wherever the energy of those women all together will be, will bring the wind of passion for life, empowerment, and success.

We as women can be vulnerable, but never weak.

We can influence our surroundings with passion and motivation, with the inner strength we have.

We can change the world spreading this energy to one woman at the time.

I firmly believe that a group of women can make a significant difference. The Global Woman Club Milan will stand up to support the GWC global community, and each other with open mind and heart, like only a woman can do.

See you in Milan!
