#WOMENPOWER #INSPIRINGWOMEN #WOMENLEADERS

Meet our wonderful women who embarked on the journey of an EMBA at ESSEC.

From entrepreneur to consultant, to lawyer, Olga, Helene, Ania and Raquel are all sailing into the deep waters of leadership, thus acting to inspire other women.

At ESSEC, we are committed to encourage diversity and gender equality. In order to motivate women to continue on their path towards excellence and leadership, we have created a dedicated scholarship for women determined to pursue positions of leadership in the future.

We believe that gender equality and diversity are needed at every step of the way in order to guarantee a good balance, encourage openness, and provide the best learning experience possible. Diversity is an essential factor of competitiveness in the workplace. A diverse environment leads to new ideas, boosts creativity and fosters innovation!

At the occasion of the International Women's Day (March 8), our ESSEC team had the opportunity to interview 4 amazing female leaders who fought to break the glass ceiling, challenge themselves and explore an ocean of opportunities by pursuing an Executive MBA program at ESSEC

Enjoy our conversations with these remarkable women, and happy International Women’s Day!
