Why we exist, what we do:
Connect and Network
We produce the practical tools needed to network effectively and meet with role models:
- Networking cocktails and special events like the Best Of! conference day, the Spring cocktail, the Blue Picnic, the Galette des Reines, all dedicated to networking among members
- Speaker events at Le Sénat with leading experts and top industry leaders - recent speakers include Sylvie Kauffmann, Nicole Notat, Claudie Haigneré, Irene Natividad, Véronique Morali or Anne Lauvergeon
- We provide access to online member forums, Think Tanks, Entrepreneur and professional communities as well as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter activities.
Learn and Develop
We use a multi-facetted approach that includes forums, live professional soft skills and hard skills training events, and e-learning, to target skill development and ongoing education.
Sharing and Mentoring
PWN-Paris provides a well-known and recognized mentoring program with a training plan for mentors and a realm of benefits for mentees. The annual “Best Of” event features speakers whose shared experiences create a positive, forward-thinking, cross-cultural drive.
Our “Prix Entrepreneure Responsable” rewards a woman’s entrepreneurial project with a year of coaching by a group of members. Our Entrepreneurs club helps our members of this category to connect, learn and develop their business.
Executive Programs, Think Tanks and Publishing
With the “Executive Forum” and “Women on Boards” programs, PWN is at the forefront of initiatives to promote the progress of women in Europe’s leading companies and provides a scene for best practice sharing and continuous improvement. Our Think Tanks and publications nourish public debate on subjects relevant to professional women.
By leveraging the professional experience and volunteerism of our members, we intend to provide our network with regular fuel for thinking, creative ideas and last but not least - the drive - to fulfill their professional endeavors!
