May 2017


Dear Members, Dear Friends, 

It is Spring time, time for elections, time to shape the future, time to vote and choose your presidents and vice-presidents. As the first French women's professional network, multicultural and multi-sector, it is important now to vote for candidates to have more impact together and influence the cause of women.

Spring will be enlightened by 2 important PWN Paris rendez-vous :

A networking event PWN Paris Garden Party at  Stade Français, in Parc de Saint-Cloud. Welcoming together women and men from all horizons, generations to share a pleasant moment, to create a networking spirit in order to build together a balanced word.

The theme of this year’s Best Of, on June 28th, will be "Perseverance, Determination and Tenacity in Sports, Culture and Arts" with an amazing panel of speakers.

Just a few words for sports :
    - Camille Lacourt, double European champion and 100m backstroke world champion
    - Pascal Gentil, double Olympic vice-champion of taekwendo
    - Frédérique Jossinet, in charge of the feminization of the French Football Federation

And Arts :
    - Zahia Ziouni, chef d’orchestre
    - Milène Guermont, engineer and artist

And it is just the beginning. More to come.

PWN Paris is the network for all the voices, deploying women and men experiences and expertise to always progress, change attitudes and stereotypes, build the future for a better world.

Always plenty of events, a large choice of conferences, workshops and networking to be inspired, to have a role to play in order to be the agents of change, to go further in the representation of women in the economy and civil society.
