Professor Julie Battilana Talk - Boston Boost'Her Launch
Time & Location
About the Event
For many years, the French Consulate General has been active in the promotion of gender equality, with the launch of a framework last year to foster French-American exchanges called the Paris-Boston Women’s Forum.
So the Consulate warmly welcomes this network “Boston Boost’Her” which will offer professional and personal development opportunities- as well as promote social innovation. It will provide its members with more interactions with the academic world in Boston and trigger projects that will help the community around us.
The first guest will be Professor Julie Battilana, a distinguished Harvard professor and expert in social innovation. Julie will discuss her latest book and call to action together with other French academics to democratize the workplace to involve employees in the government of their workplace, decommodify parts of the economy that cannot just be managed by market forces, and remediate the environment. The Covid-19 crisis magnified the massive inequalities in wealth and access to care and we will have the opportunity to discuss these issues and the contributions we can all bring.
Boston Boost’Her will then welcome other guests that are working on these topics as well as entrepreneurs to share their experience and catalyze more initiatives!
Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org and Vanina.Laurent-Ledru@sanofi.com and note that only the first 30 guests will be able to register due to COVID context. The seating arrangement and layout of the Residence provide social-distancing between guests; we ask that all participants wear face masks to the event and, in case of an outdoor event, dress accordingly.
Boston Boost’Her is an initiative currently led by Vanina Laurent-Ledru, Eleonore Barthouil and Colombe Saint-Pere.
