Women in Leadership in the Information Society (WiL)
More than 100 top-level women from the European business, politics, academics and NGOs make up the Paris-based European Network for Women in Leadership (WiL). What started in 2008 as an informal initiative of Microsoft, INSEAD and Women’s Forum, is now an active platform for exchanging ideas and best practices. France Telecom/Orange and a few others such as Lefebvre Software and the law firm De Gaulle, Fleurence & Associés have recently become WiL sponsors. We use our regular biannual meetings and other focused events to advance gender equality initiatives to the European elites and share opportunities which are not available in all women’s socio-professional environment. The mentoring program for young women and the support for European Commission’s programs for women in ICT are some of the first steps WiL has taken in the advancement of women to top leadership positions.
