PWN Paris Newsletter October 2019

Last June PWN Paris became inclusive opening its doors to men while keeping its purpose of promoting female leadership and a more equitable society and economic environment.

Indeed despite all the effort on women development, the situation is hardly evolving : only 15% of women in executive committee, remaining pay gap... despite laws and reports demonstrating the economic benefit of more balanced management. 

Why so? Well, we cannot have an action one-sided when the topic involves both men and women. So the change can only happen if women and men act side by side to foster change within organizations. 

PWN has the legitimacy to drive change ; PWN wants to be at the forefront and bring innovative approaches to accelerate the movement. 

By opening the network to men, we are conscious that is a significant transformation. Such a move doesn’t come without risk ; it needs careful orchestrating  to ensure respect and preservation of our culture and values. 

Part of this process is to welcome men, convinced about the urgency to act, and adapt our way of doing  to become an inclusive network. Today 12 men have already joined PWN Paris. 

To this extent, we gathered, on October 15, 60 people with a perfectly balanced representation of men and women. The 2-hour discussion without taboo was so energizing and encouraging. Many concrete ideas popped up: experience sharing of men and women to uncover stereotypes , mentoring, ambassador role within organizations ...

This is just a beginning, we will reflect on all the suggestions made and build new strategies and development plan. We will soon come back to you with a proposal.

We are confident that you share with us the obligation to transforming our beloved network to adapt to the twenty-first century.
