A look back at: Les Assises de la Parité 2022

On 28 June 2022, Rennes School of Business participated in Les Assises de la Parité 2022, an event which promotes dialogue, information and action in order to progress towards gender equality.

An event to promote gender equality

Les Assises de la Parité is an annual event organised by the International Women’s Forum association which aims to evoke issues of inequality between the genders and promote dialogue, exchange and progress towards gender equality in society and the workplace. This year, the French-language event took place online on 28 June 2022.

Workshops and roundtables on diverse issues

A series of talks, workshops and roundtables were organised on diverse issues, with external speakers coming together from a host of backgrounds and sectors to exchange on topics such as:

  • Empathy, a performance lever
  • Inequalities in companies: senior women doubly impacted
  • Parity: the relationship with money
  • Overcoming stereotypes and unconscious bias
  • Diversity and parity, the same battle? How can we promote inclusion?
  • Transformation and new jobs: the end of gendered jobs

Thomas Froehlicher, Director General and Dean of Rennes School of Business spoke during a roundtable on the subject of “Recruitment, retention, high potential… How to promote parity? »

Joining him at the roundtable were Caroline Evans de Gantes, Managing Director of the SeLoger Group and Meilleurs Agents (AVIV France), Robert Leblanc, CEO of AON, Laurence Usciati, Comex Member of the Pénélope group and Mélina David, Director of Human Resources Development of SFR.
