WHO IS SHE?

  • She has started a series of enterprises, her first one at just 22 years old. 
  • She has personal experience with discrimination. 
  • She has 3 children. 
  • She created JUMP in 2006. 

 

WHAT PROBLEM IS SHE TARGETTING?

Only 41% of managers think that gender equality has a positive impact on performance (McKinsey Study « Women Matter »)  

 

Enterprises do not take into account new aspirational trends: 90% of men and woman say raising their children is their focus compared to only 50% outlining professional success as their priority. 

 

Men largely dominate enterprises: in Europe, there are only 12% of woman in a board of directors position, and less than 10% on a governing board, despite legislative progress. The most commonly used leadership model is based on masculine values and woman subsequently miss out on roles. 

 

 

HER SOLUTIONS

  • To identify role models: women, men and enterprises that offer a work-life balance.  
  • To enhance all leadership models: to ensure authenticity.  
  • To develop an ambitious communication strategy: events, media, training etc…

 

- To internally legitimise and reinforce these models into enterprises:
