TIKAD was established in 2004 with the mission to contribute to the economic and social development of Turkiye. It aimed to provide a space to women leaders across various fields and strengthen their presence in the business world. This would allow them to have the influence and affluence to impact public opinion and government. Hence, they can play their part in the democratization process of Turkey.
