Substitute member of the Host Committee on behalf of Women Engineers, the only network of French women the most represented, Marie-Hélène was force proposal to promote intra-entrepreneurs in the technology sector and for the identification of keynote speakers including Eva Kail for the City of Vienna (AU), known for its determination and success to mainstream gender in the management and urbanization of the city.
In afternoon dense in interventions and discussions on group work practices; beyond the intercultural, the multi-disciplinarity, and the inter-generationality, Marie-Hélène challenged the 70 representatives of schools on the gender issue underlying the work groups and the need for future engineers and managers to acquire the skill set to manage the process of ' social control 'of a work group.
Since the world changes and opens itself to the gender dimension, Marie-Hélène Therre is involved and/or participates in several international events to contribute to a more inclusive society and organizations at every level; often, her partners or clients are also involved. Let's be amazed by the diversity of approaches!
