PWN Paris Newsletter January 2020

Dear Members and Friends,  

2020 has now started, so we wish you and your loved ones a wonderful year.

You may already be swamped under your work or thinking about how to give a new momentum to your career ? You may ask yourselves about what could be the best next step of your professional career or wish to share your deep experience ? Whoever you are, whatever is your project, you are very much welcome within PWN Paris!  

2020 is indeed time for new challenges, for positiveness and for action. 

Professional Women's Network is all about continuity, energy and innovation. For 23 years now, PWN Paris has been accelerating and developing professional women’s careers as our goal is to support women in their leadership and overcome the glass ceiling that needs to become an obsolete concept. Executive women only represent 16.6% of board seats which is clearly not enough. On the other hand, companies and organisations recognise that gender balanced leadership improves competitiveness, financial performance, social climate and corporate culture.

A better representation of both sexes is a driver of performance, attractiveness and creativity for companies. Globally increasing the number of women in management is crucial, however barriers remain: stereotypes, lack of mentoring or role models, too weak decisions to impose coeducation... PWN Paris is here to propose keys for a better governance of your career.   

PWN Paris is a springboard for our individual members to boost their career and is a pool of talents for companies and organisations. We act together, women and men, with the objective to build a better society. In that sense, throughout 2020 we will be aligning our strategy and work programme along our theme of the year: Talents & Gender Balance.  

Thanks to our new board and our many volunteers who make the network what it is, everyday - a community of destiny, engaged towards our collective ambition: gender balance for a better society. 

Françoise Derolez & Marie-Laetitia Gourdin,
PWN Paris Presidents
