Muriel de Saint Sauveur, Group Diversity Director, has interviewed 100 women of economic, political and cultural prominence from 33 different countries and asks them what they would change about the world’s organisation if they had power.
Amongst them are the talented Chinese photographer and writer Xiao Hui Wang; Assana Sangaré-Ouattara, a deputy in the National Assembly of the Ivory Coast; the influential Egyptian businesswoman Loula Zaklama and also 15 French women including the Economist Sylvie Brunel, Clara Gaymard, CEO of General Electric France, Françoise Gri, CEO of Manpower France and Marie Jo Zimmermann, deputy for Moselle and President of the French National Assembly’s delegation on women’s rights and gender equality.
7 Algerian women were interviewed by Mazars Hadj Ali:
- Ludmilla Mansouri : Cegelec Algeria HR Director
- Taous Ameyar : President of the Algerian chess federation and CEO of Pixal Communication
- Rym Othmani : CEO of MMC DDB
- Latifa Brahimi : Former student and class valedictorian of the Algeria School of Business (ESAA)
- Dalila Smail : Journalist
- Sabrina Alioua : 2010 Algerian champion of billiards
- Nadia Aït-Zaï : Lawyer and President of the Center of Information and Documentation on the Rights of Children and Women (CIDDEF)
More involved, more ambitious and less egocentric, their priorities are different to those of men. Economy and strategy are not at the top of their lists, instead they view education as an essential objective towards social emancipation and living together in harmony. Their optimistic perception of the world envisions an organisation different to that of our society today.
"A women’s world, a better world?”, was officially launched at the Women’s Forum which took place from 13th to 15th October 2011 at Deauville (France) and released on 12th October 2011 in bookstores.
