I really enjoy being an active member of PWN Paris since I joined in 2013. I love this great local, international, inter-professional and inter-generational business network of working women, open in 2019 to men who share our values. To feel good and part of this network I recommend to be involved in one or more of the groups.

« Gend’her » think tank was created from my observation. Men are strongly represented at meetings or conferences of the real estate industry, which is not the case for women. Most of the existing associations that promote women rights and inclusion in business are made up by women for other women. Thus, as an expert of this industry, I wanted to create a think tank of c-levels that would involve both men and women.Read more
