Survey of more than 100 000 sector executives, women and men. The results will provide input to the work of the Observatory in 2017/2018.
Financi’Elles offers a simple and pragmatic approach, that suits the needs and particularities of each of its partners:
For networks : mutall support and enrichment through the pooling of actions benefiting their members and the sharing of best practices to accelerate change within their companies.
For female executives : offer a space for discussion, personal enrichment, and open cross-networking, highlight women’s achievements and concrete actions by companies, and actively contribute to making the sector more attractive to women.
For companies – HR departments : share a common repository for tracking progress in gender diversity. Make tools available that are supported and recognised by industry experts.
For companies – General Management and Communications Department : encourage commitments to promoting gender diversity in partner companies for the benefit of the sector as a whole.

The sector’s challenge is to identify, mobilise, and prepare future generations at all levels of the company.
