The Business Club Painted with Lipstick is a self-financing organization of businesswomen who pursue economic activities in Kielce and in the Świętokrzyski region.Our first meeting was held in September 2014 and the official inauguration took placein March 2015. In the first months of 2016 we acquired the status of foundation. Whatcharacterizes our club is its apolitical and independent character as well as respect forideological, religious, or cultural difference because each of us is an individual. We associateonly women but it is not an expression of discrimination to the opposite sex.We appreciate and respect men at every level of our lives. We want to act in favorof leveling opportunities, regardless of sex, age or origin. The point is that both in life andin business we should be equal partners for ourselves with the common denominatorof having the right to be ... ourselves. We call ourselves a Business Club but the businessis not our sole leitmotif. We try to treat running a business as part of a larger whole, whichis our being. According to the concept of work-life balance we try to manage our time insuch a way as to strike a balance between private life and work and also to have time topursue our passions, although in our case our passion is often our work. The objectiveswhich we defined for ourselves result from an observation of our needs and the surroundingreality. Within the Club we want to provide support for each other and exchangevaluable experience and knowledge of management, which then can be applied in ourcompanies. We also have the ambition to work towards our immediate environment andthe local community. We want to have a variety of initiatives - from promoting entrepreneurshipthrough sponsorship of activities related to culture and the arts, to the charitywork for various individuals and organizations. The fate of the children is of particularimportance to us and first of all we want to help them. Our city and region are alsovery important to us. We see them through the prism of people, places, and numerousinitiatives, all of which make up the overall potential of the Świętokrzyskie developed withreal passion. We want people, especially the young, to see their chance for developmentand self-fulfillment in Kielce. We want to perceive it as an attractive and inspiring place tolive and conduct business.

Our club is quite a young initiative and therefore we are aware that we still have a lotto do, but ultimately we are really interested in the fruits of this creative activity.We strongly believe in the idea of working in a group and that, starting with ourselves,we can change our environment for better.
