Get Involved: Mission Possible – The Women’s Way

illustration_organiserGive your career the kick start it deserves!

Although a lot of progress has been made regarding diversity and gender balance in the working world, this issue is still predominant today. It is therefore normal for women graduates to feel lost when choosing their careers, negotiating their first salaries or looking for a good work-life balance.

Constance, Celine and Joel, three managers at BNP Paribas therefore decided to take the matter into their own hands, looking to share their experiences and top tips for shining at work in a small pocket guide for women starting their careers. Mission Possible: The Women’s Way is humorous, packed full of practical advice, anecdotes, quotes from renowned female leaders and even… a male point of view!

“We want to help women with their first steps into the working world. Our assessment is simple: too many talented women have not anticipated the difficulties to cope with professional environments which can be male-dominated and they do not know how to work their way through,” say the authors. However, we have received feedback from more senior women saying that it is always useful to read these pieces of advice throughout your career!

Being a woman and having a successful and fulfilling career… it is mission possible!

couv_Pink_GB_HDSince the launch of the guide in February 2012, more than 4,000 copies have been sold to students and young professionals, as well as Human Resources managers of CAC40 companies. Moreover, we have hosted many events and conferences in top business and engineering schools as well as in female professional networks. The guide was also distributed at the United Nations Women Empowerment Principles event on March 6th, 2012.

Mission Possible: The Women’s Way is small enough to fit in your handbag and is available in English, French and Italian, making it the perfect accompaniment for your first steps in the corporate world!

The guide also combines efforts towards both diversity and social responsibility with all profits going to charities supporting women’s integration in the corporate world. A donation amounting to 5,000 euros has already been made to a French charity promoting the professional integration of women coming from underprivileged backgrounds.

Mission Possible: The Women’s Way is available for sale for 5 euros. If you would like to buy a copy, please visit our website, or email us at [email protected] if you would like to pass a bulk order for your company.
