PWN Paris Newsletter November 2019

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Members, 

The news shows us every day, women’s voice becomes freer, half of humanity asking for more equality, consideration and justice. #Metoo movement shows us how difficult is the way to break the straitjacket of habits, the weight of a culture, how complex is the way to reach equality. This debate is legitimate, it is our society, it is our responsibility to change the world, we are all, women and men, agents of change.  

Good vibes with the recent Nobel Prize in Economics awarded to Esther Duflo, Christine Largarde’s nomination at Head of European Central Bank, Ursula von der Leyen, elected President of  European Commission, the European Union has appointed Kristalina Georgieva to Head of the International Monetary Fund, Margrethe Vestager is recognized as Personality of the Year as Executive Vice President-Designate of the European Commission for a Europe fit for the Digital Age… Strong women and role models however, this is clearly not enough, the numbers are stubborn and we have only 15% of women at executive level, this figure does not evolve. 

PWN Paris is a pool of 700 talents, cross-sectors and international, 4000 talents across more than 20 city networks. Do not hesitate to contact us, to meet us, on November 28th during the Welcome cocktail is a good opportunity to understand the value proposition of PWN Paris. Take part in the vote to elect the new PWN Paris board. Voting will be open until November 26th and the results will be announced at our Annual General Assembly planned on December 3rd. The Christmas Party, one of the most fabulous opportunity to network, but not only lot of fun at the agenda. Thanks to join us.

Hope to see you and continue the conversation to develop and accelerate women’s careers.

Happy November.
