Martine Liautaud and the WIF foundation together with BNP Paribas host a dinner-debate in the Cercle Interallié in Paris to celebrate the sixth anniversary of WBMI, with a panel discussion about the challenges facing entrepreneurs in the 21st century and the keys to success.
Martine Liautaud participates in a panel discussion in New York, with BNP Paribas & MixCity BNG together with Catherine Flax Head of Commodity, Derivatives, FX & Local Markets at BNP Paribas, Jean Wynn, Managing Director & Market Segment Lead Corporate & Public Finance BNY Mellon, and Tulsi Byrne, Manger of Social Sustainability & Gender Equality and Integrity, UN Global Compact.
The discussion will focus on best practices for the advancement of Women.
The lunch-debate jointly hosted on September 6th by the Women Initiative Foundation and L’Express magazine was a big success
Over 100 women and men of influence, managers and entrepreneurs were seduced by Isabelle Kocher’s (CEO of ENGIE) pragmatic and innovative management concept.
After setting ENGIE’s strategic issues and ambitions in terms of energy transformation, Isabelle insisted on the pressing need to reconsider together the organization, the management practices and the chain of command in the era of digitalization.
ENGIE is implementing an open management system, based on everyone’s initiative and responsibility. Women play an important role in a Group whose Board is the most feminized among the French big corporations.
A positive and punchy discussion took place with Martine Liautaud, Founder and CEO of the Women Initiative Foundation and Valérie Lion, Deputy Chief Editor at L’Express. Eventually, Isabelle easily managed to convince of the relevance and universality of her management model.
This lunch initiates a series of debates with role models coming from the business and economic world, and showing an interest in diversity. Whether they are French or not, those public figures will address topics intended to an audience of entrepreneurs and decision makers.
The first event of this program designed by WBMI and implemented with its partner BNP Paribas was a great success;
This program allows women entrepreneurs from 12 countries to receive a week of training in management, negotiation, implementation of change and growth strategies.
This year again, 4 places will be offered to WBMI mentees.
The Women Initiative Foundation hosted two events in New York City on May 5 and May 6, 2016. Martine Liautaud, founder of WIF, presented her newly published book “Breaking Through” and shared with two entrepreneurs and two mentors who have found success through the Women Initiative Foundation (click here : May 5, May 6).
