In an interview for Future Collars, Tudor emphasized that automation and digitization are necessary for the survival of companies, even though this process requires significant resources. Discussing the implementation of technology, she pointed out that the experience of companies can vary depending on their size, with smaller businesses having the opportunity for a more productive process with the right partnership and education.
During the conversation, Tudor pointed out the importance of women-led companies in the global economy, emphasizing that they are more sustainable and inclined to reinvest in communities. The European Women's Association creates an ecosystem that supports women in entering and developing business on a global scale.
