Women make up about half of the world's population. Based on this data, it should be expected that half of the benefits of the development process go to women and the other half to men. However, the reality is different. Managers, as well as the general population, still strongly believe that managerial success is related to male characteristics. Socially speaking, power is the ability to combine different sources of individual power to achieve change, that is, greater benefits for the society than for the individual. And the individual, whether male or female is equally powerful and capable.

Encouraged by the strategy of the Government of the Republic of North Macedonia for gender equality, and on the eve of International Women's Day 8th March we decided to symbolically emphasize the importance of the role of women in modern society, i.e. the importance of women in Customs. At the event organized in the Customs Administration of the Republic of North Macedonia, through an electronic platform, several women managers addressed all customs officers.

Valentina Pivovarova, Director of the Customs Human Resources Sector said that 29.5% of the employees in the Customs Administration are women and that in the forthcoming period Customs will actively work to make professions considered male and female equal and ensure equal representation. because "Career has no gender."

Sasha Sashek Gosheva, Director of the Sector for Financial Affairs, spoke about the fact that achieving your goals is not always easy, particularly not for women, accompanied by many challenges, positive and negative sides, emphasizing that: "there is no magic in achieving the goals. It all comes down to hard work, real choices and perseverance. Being a successful woman means that you get your power from within yourself, not from what others think, approve or expect of you. Being a successful woman means to find your own way. "Understanding that there is no 'ideal path' but an 'ideal path for you' is the key to being truly successful."

Tanja Ilijoska, Head of Customs House Gevgelija, presented the beliefs and tradition of the division of the world into male and female, but also that this practice has changed significantly in the last decade, finally emphasizing that "Contrary to informally established rules and stereotypes for the division of labor between men and women either professionally or in the household, it is clear that there is no professional area in which a woman cannot work. "And with that, we should all be clear that there are no male or female jobs."

Madjide Atipi, head of the Customs Office Debar, stressed that for her personally there is no difficult or easy task, but there is a task that needs to be done until the goal is achieved. If there is good coordination, good organization of affairs and good management of activities, success is inevitable.

At the end of the event, the Director General of the Customs Administration, Goran Sugareski, addressed the audience, taking the opportunity to encourage all employees, especially women, to be proactive in every field, and to jointly, consistently and professionally accomplish the mission of the Customs Administration. He also stressed that equality in every aspect is his priority, because it is a guarantee that all employees will fully use their potentials and capacities for personal realization, in line with the common vision and goal of the institution: to be the leading Customs Administration in the region, which will give strong support to the economy and which will be fully harmonized with the standards of the European Union.
