Conference with Marie Cau, the first transgender woman elected mayor in France

Organized by the Leadership & Diversity chair and the Unite association, a conference with Marie Cau took place on Thursday evening the 19th!

Marie Cau, known to be the first transgender woman elected mayor in France, is also a business leader, an experienced engineer and a mother of three children. This multiple vision provided her the tools that she passed on to us during the meeting to deal with this increasingly complex world.

What impressed me about Marie Cau, apart from her fascinating career, is her frankness. This frankness sometimes led her to proposals that did not necessarily correspond to "main-streaming" ideas. However, this is the synonym, for me, of true diversity: differences make ideas meet, and these meetings will generate a kaleidoscopic and diverse world. (thoughts by Peiao Yang)
