PWN Paris Newsletter December 2019

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, 

It is with a lot of emotion and huge gratitude that we wish to thank Cecile Bernheim, with whom Françoise worked for 4 years at PWN Paris presidency. Our aim was to transform the network and open it to gender balanced leadership. Why? Because it is crucial to have a fair women presence at each level in companies and organisations. Many surveys show that mixity is a source of performance and competitiveness. With the Board, we are very proud to have reached this objective in June 2019 and announced the opening of the network to men membership during the annual PWN Paris Congress. The initiative was supported by Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Deputy Minister of Economy, Salwa Toko, President of the National Digital Council, and Marie-Pierre Rixain, Member of the Parliament (Essonne).

#ThankYouCecile for your commitment to accelerate and develop women’s career, your positive attitude and willing to transform PWN Paris towards gender balance. You are a role model for all PWN Paris members and beyond. 

We take this opportunity to invite you to express your views in the ongoing citizen consultation on gender equality launched by Minister of Economy, Bruno Lemaire, and Deputy Minister for Equality between women and men, Marlène Schiappa – participate here, you have until 20 January.

Today, a new chapter of PWN Paris opens with a new co-Presidency led by Françoise Derolez and Marie-Laetitia Gourdin whose mandate will focus on both continuing the legacy from previous actions, in particular regarding gender balance, and on taking the network one step further by innovating with new programmes aiming at bringing the new generation of leaders to the network, making sure that all members feel they are supported throughout their career development and leadership, and increasing PWN Paris external visibility and impact.

The year comes to an end, and while we are all starting to feel the need for some holidays, both Françoise and Marie-Laetitia, as well as the whole Board (Jarka, Claire, Anna, Romaine, Marie-Laure, Pierrette, Virginie, Christina and Isabelle) that has partly changed following recent elections, want to wish you all a very festive season to you and your loved ones. May 2020 bring many happy memories so that we can look back and say that we are proud of what we have achieved collectively and individually.

Françoise Derolez & Marie-Laetitia Gourdin,
PWN Paris Presidents
