The Alumni HEC Paris with the support of the French embassy and the French Institute celebrate their first French German Women Forum in Berlin.

HEC Paris (École des hautes études commerciales de Paris) is an international business school established in 1881 and located in Jouy-en-Josas, France. Among the most selective French grandes écoles, HEC Paris offers its flagship Master in Management, MBA and EMBA programs, specialized MSc programs, a PhD program, and executive education offerings.

HEC Paris is the founding member of CEMS - Global Alliance in Management Education and holds the triple accreditation (AACSB, AMBA, EQUIS).  With ESSEC and ESCP, it forms the informal group commonly referred as the 3 Parisiennes ("the three Parisians").

The question of women in the workplace remains a hot topic in Germany. Although manners, stereotypes and behaviors have evolved during the past 10 years, including the election of a woman head of the country, the country retains a certain vision of women at work.
Unlike France, where the idea of women in the workplace is more developed and less judged.

This forum aims to develop ideas and discuss the place of women in the workplace and how to find solutions to change the manners of some countries.

The fact that the French know how to get more women in the work place is appreciated by German workers and this event aims to share best practices, concrete examples and next step actions to be carried out in each and every environment.
