Policy Advocacy: Spiralis is a catalyst for policy  advocacy affecting the Czech non-governmental sector. From our initial convening of NGO representatives to shape the legislative and regulatory framework for our sector, we have expanded our scope to reflect the broader theme of social responsibility and social entrepreneurship  to build stronger communities.

Stáňa Bašatová

Stáňa gave birth to children afflicted by clubfoot. She founded Achilleus, the first Czech information website and civic association about the condition. Her goal was to create a supportive community for parents. Ten years later, there are more than 550 parents actively sharing knowledge, experiences, and resources. Through Spiralis's half-year program for women leaders, Stáňa learned to rediscover herself, and to appreciate her strengths and abilities. She learned how to be a visible and vocal partner to doctors and other professionals by asking questions, offering her perspective, and collaborating when clear answers are hard to obtain. She gave up her professional career, in order to provide hope to others. Now this year, she is nominated for the annual Czech Woman of the Year competition

 

 

 

Šárka Juřinová

 

Šárka loves history, studied archaeology, and co-founded the Liboc Archaeological Park. She worried that few people knew about the beautiful park, located on the western edge of Prague; and wanted more children and adults to enjoy the area. Through Spiralis's leadership training, Šárka had access to professional guidance and mentoring. "Thanks to individual steps laid out by my mentor, I managed a successful launch to the season, increasing park attendance by 450 children! " Šárka also gained the expertise and self-confidence to succeed in her professional ambitions, and was selected to become the director of the Regional Museum in Jílové u Prahy. Thanks to Spiralis, Šárka's dreams became reality.
