PWN Paris Newsletter April 2020

Dear Members, dear Friends, 

We sincerely hope that you are doing well in these strange days. For three weeks now, our daily lives have been radically changed. We are asked to fight an invisible enemy by staying home. Some of us are already used to working from home, others aren't. Some of us are working for big companies, others are self-employed. We are not equally equipped to face this crisis, and we, at PWN Paris, are investing our efforts into providing you with tools and advice on how to best live through this period and prepare the future. 

It's indeed very important to continue to work on your professional network, to develop your career and leadership. It's also very important to continue to promote gender balance so that women can take the role they deserve in shaping the new deal that we are all expecting from this crisis. 

A new model needs to emerge from this situation. It's easy to tell that our current model has reached its limits, notably in terms of the globalisation of industry, but also that there is a pressing need to tackle the even bigger threat that awaits in front of us: climate change. 

This crisis reveals that we can all make a difference by staying home, it's as simple as that. So, imagine what we could achieve if we undertook to tackle global challenges. As an individual, you can make a difference. 

To help you find your way, in these days where meaning is what we are looking for, at PWN Paris, we organise several activities that aim at inspiring you. In this newsletter edition, you will notably read about our mentoring programme, you will find practical tips for increasing your productivity online when you are an entrepreneur, and portraits of two of our members who are leading inspiring projects within and outside PWN Paris... 

We wish you a good reading and hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming activities, online or in person!

Kindest regards, 

Françoise Derolez & Marie-Laetitia Gourdin,
PWN Paris Presidents
