Woman as a Business Leader:- On the eve of March 8, International Women’s Day, we could only talk about them, even if, after all, there is no reason for this date to be the only day to be dedicated to them. Patience! Maybe one day, March 8 wills it be the official day of these gentlemen.
Woman as a Business Leader
While 80% of 25- to 49-year-old women work in France today, they only rarely occupy high-level management positions. Yet when they succeed, their success is just as equal as their male counterparts would be. Many women are sacrificing their careers for the benefit of their families. The opposite is less common. And much less well seen, let’s be honest … This tough choice that pulls them at one time or another is very rarely fully assumed, whatever it is.
To achieve a professional status that lives up to their ambition, while having a fulfilling family and women’s life, many are those who resort to the creation of their own company.
These entrepreneurs, some of whom are mampreneurs, believe that this is one of the best ways to ensure a certain balance between private and professional life. They understood that it is indeed very difficult to combine the two and to blossom in one and the other when one is not a master on board … Hence the will to become on its own and to optimize its schedules and its schedule according to the needs of each one.
Reconciling private and professional lives
This is the case of Julie, 37 years old, happy mother of 3 children. What already represents in itself a full-time job! However, our young mother did not fully fulfill her role. She refused, however, to entrust her three adorable toddlers to a nanny, even though she would have found the pearl of pearls, from 7h to 19h for a routine job (that’s all we proposed to her after her parental leave). Julie would have spent her time brooding this professional bridle and strongly feel guilty about her children.
It is therefore natural that she turned to entrepreneurship. The step was not easy to cross but once the barriers raised and the fears swept away, in great passion for natural products, it is logical that she ends up daring by starting up in the manufacture and sale of organic products. Today, his children have grown up. His business also flourished. Julie now employs 5 people. She does not regret her choice for anything in the world and is ready to start again if it was to redo. Her only “regret”: having waited so long before diving into the exhilarating world of entrepreneurs…
Networking for Women
Julie’s case is not isolated. In a world dominated by men, women struggle to climb the ladder. The course is often fraught with pitfalls. They must redouble their strength of character and constantly prove their skills. A priori have a hard life. But that would be without counting on the feminine solidarity! Several networks have been created, all almost at the initiative of a woman from elsewhere. They are greatly useful and used by these pioneers who rely on them without complexes.
Among these circles, that of the mompreneurs, created in 2008, and whose objective, for the members, is to regroup, to find support, to extend their actions and to make themselves more visible.
The National Centers of Information for the Rights of Women and Families (CNIDFF), for their part, relay, through their 114 local offices, the action of the authorities in terms of access to rights for women, fight against gender discrimination and the promotion of equality between women and men.
For the more financial side, the Women- Initiated Guarantee Fund guarantees medium-term bank loans.
In short! Women have been able to organize themselves in order to make things easier for themselves and to find a place for them in this world. It is well known, the union is strength! Among their greatest assets: increased ease of adaptation to these gentlemen and an ability to lead several distinct tasks head-on. And above all, above all: strength of character and motivation to any test!
