Stand Up For Passion : Women Who Change the Game


Stand Up For Passion: Women Who Change the Game

Meet 7 women who will inspire your life and career

In spite of progress in the recent years, gender equality in the workplace remains a goal to strive for, and women are underrepresented in too many fields.

Ensuring women are given the same professional prospects and career choices as men are an important priority of Emmanuel Macron’s government. This is the reason why on June 27th, Arnaud Collery, Stand Up for Passion and the Consulate General of France in New York will give the floor to some of the women who are the drivers of this much needed cultural, social and economic change.

Come meet scientists, media professionals, entrepreneurs and engineers who are all leaders in their fields. They will be given 7 minutes each to inspire you by sharing their own experiences and how they achieved the goals they set for themselves.

Arnaud Collery, Global Chief Happiness Officer and author of the book Mister Happiness coaches the speakers and will host the event. Stand Up For Passion was founded in 2014 and aims to find the best stories of resilience and purpose. They have had events in New York, Tokyo, London, Kathmandu, and most recently in Casablanca, Morocco. Events will soon be held in Toronto, Canada and São Paulo, Brazil.
