For the inaugural edition of Ella, we have invited two inspiring female role models with distinct career paths. Alongside them, we shared stories and insights from our professional journeys.

We invited female clients and potential clients to join us for an evening of empowering stories, lessons learned, and the chance to network with like-minded women in a relaxed setting.

We have chosen a unique venue for this event: a high-end apartment that is currently on the market – a potential future home for someone.


Hosted by:

Georgiana Bădescu | partner | Schoenherr


Guest speakers:

Cristiana Oprea | Romanian rally driver and the founder of "Women in Motorsport"
Lavinia Ivas | CEO | Parfumerie Douglas Romania


Today, about 58 % of lawyers active in Romania are women. The days when the first attempts by Romanian women to be admitted to the Bar were met with repeated rejections are long gone, and we can no longer talk about gender imparity among lawyers in our country. But, unfortunately, this cannot be said for all sectors and all hierarchical levels, so fostering dialogue, supporting successful role models, as well as encouraging educational and mentoring activities aimed at promoting diversity are still needed.

I am honoured to have been part of the inaugural Ella event and to meet a vibrant community of women who amplify each other’s qualities and potential. I’m glad I was able to bring sport closer to the business environment, through interesting discussions designed to inspire and highlight the importance of resilience in any field.

Cristiana Oprea

I was delighted to attend the launch of the Ella event series, inspired by Romania’s first female practicing lawyer, Ella Negruzzi. Ella is a space where every woman can find her voice, develop her potential and share her story, inspiring and being inspired by other members of the community.
