Social Director

Wanting to share her experience as a trailing spouse, Milena Guarino Padula became a Portable Career Advisor for expats spouses and partners that find themselves moving frequently while attempting to build a professional life.

As a spouse of an Italian Diplomat she had the opportunity to organise several events in the countries they were posted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Furthermore she was able to improve her education in several Institutions such as University of Siena, University of Reading and McGill University.

She lived and worked in Moscow, London, Rome, Bahrain and Montreal changing country every four years.
Those experiences gave her a multicultural background that has allowed her to understand different cultures and work with people from different nationalities. Moving so often has also improved her organisational skills and her adaptability to new environments. She has organised several social and fundraising events and she has been active in the  Public Relation field.

Back in Rome she founded the Education and Career Group, hosting networking events to provide members with training opportunities and connection chances.

She is also Board Member of ACDMAE (Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spouses Association) and the Italian Delegate for EUFASA (European Union Foreign Affairs Spouses Associations).

She joined PWA because she found  an association very sensitive to gender balance topics, always  trying to put the woman’s  role and her qualities in the right spotlight. The more she gets involved with PWA, the more she wants to give her contribution to its growth and development, for this reason she  presented  her candidacy as PWA Social Director and was elected.
