JC Agid’s philosophy has always been to break down barriers and bring people together to reach faster and more efficient results. This was so true when he developed and coordinated the CEO Champions’ initiative of the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society. This is how the 30% Club, which I co-founded in the UK at the same time CEO Champions was launched in France, became a permanent partner and/or active participant to advance the issues of promotion of women in the workplace.
