PWN Paris Newsletter June 2020

Dear Members and Friends, 

We are now entering a new phase of the crisis, where the sanitary dimension is getting better, but where negative economic and social aftermath are most likely to be considerable. 

It is important to face the situation with objectivity: businesses, whether corporate or entrepreneurs, will have to go through a tough phase. 

But we need to remember that we can collectively overcome this crisis, as we did in 2008 for instance. 

Leadership and innovation are the key leverage for transitioning to the "world after". 

At PWN Paris, we are calling for this new world, where women and men will have equal rights and opportunities in business and in society in general. 

This is why we have just launched our new committee dedicated to gender balance, "En avant la mixité!", led by Cecile Bernheim, Member of PWN Paris Advisory board and former PWN Paris co-President. Marco Maggiorotto is part of this committee and is talking in this newsletter about his commitment to gender balance. 

This is also why we are closely working with a number of partners, notably Orange and Printemps.com featured in this edition. 

The influence of PWN Paris is growing every day thanks to our vision about women leadership and gender balance, and we are proud to have been recognised for our work and agility, notably in times of Covid-19 where we have transformed our offer into online events. We have been cited in several articles this past month, notably L'ExpressOuest-France and Les Echos.

Besides, because we deeply believe in collective efforts to achieve our vision, as you know as founding member of 2GAP - Gender and Governance Action Platform - we have been invited to participate in discussions with Marlène Schiappa, Secrétaire d'Etat pour l'égalité femmes-hommes.

Lastly, be prepared for our upcoming General Assembly, organised online on 9 July at 6.30pm. We will present an outlook of our activities and finance reporting for 2019, as well as a recap of our action in the first semester of 2020 during lockdown and our plans to transition to a new, and more user friendly, web platform very soon.  

With this, please have a look at our calendar of activities since we have plenty of exciting online events planned until the Summer.

We look forward to seeing you soon. 

With kind regards, 

Françoise Derolez & Marie-Laetitia Gourdin,
PWN Paris Presidents
