IN-DEPTH SERIES Women’s Ambition : coming together for the future

Because we are convinced that female ambition nourishes our collective one, we present to you our in-depth series about women’s ambition. Discover its roots, its obstacles and the possibilities it offers everyone. Read it, consult it, and mostly, share it. Because inequality has gone long enough.


For us, it is an incalculable loss every time a woman walks away from her professional aspirations. A step backward is a setback for us all. Faced with the current situation, we feel a greater sense of urgency than ever to take a stand and act.
