AmCham Ukraine is a part of EMPOWER HER initiative by AmCham EU and the AmChams in Europe network that aims to promote the role of women in international business and trade.

Women’s Executives Leadership Development Initiative (WELDI) is a personal development and business-networking platform that brings together successful, powerful, and goal-oriented women leaders for more than nine years. WELDI is aimed at boosting leadership skills, learning, and empowerment of women leaders. Created in 2013 under the umbrella of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine, this initiative unites 500 TOP female leaders from AmCham Ukraine member companies.

WELDI Leader

We are proud of our like-minded WELDI community that unites talented and visionary female leaders from AmCham members through knowledge, experience sharing, and empowerment. We are grateful to GSK and PepsiCo Ukraine for the longstanding partnership and support of the project. Join us in 2021 to learn, discover, inspire, and get inspired together!


Tetyana Prokopchuk

Vice President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine


At PepsiCo, we know that diversity of opinions and experiences drives innovation. Incorporating diversity, equality, and inclusion into our culture and strategy not only creates a space where our employees can indeed be themselves but give us a competitive advantage in the market. A commitment to diversity is an integral part of PepsiCo's sustainability strategy and is reflected in our global plan to achieve gender balance in management roles. In Ukraine, we are already very close to this goal - the proportion of women in the leadership team and senior positions in the company is more than 40%.
