Events for March 8, 2021, Women's Rights Day 

9-10:30 a.m. : Annual meeting of the Observatoire de la RSE

As every year, on International Women's Rights Day, March 8, the Observatoire de la RSE organizes a debate on gender equality issues.

This year, given the health situation, this meeting will be held remotely. Meet up to exchange on your experience during the lockdown.

With telecommuting and partial activity, the time spent at home is not the same. What has changed in the home organization, in the distribution of domestic tasks and the sharing of family responsibilities? If there are changes, will they be permanent?

 Key note speaker:

  • Anne Boring, Assistant Professor at the Erasmus School of Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam. Head of the Women in Business Chair at Sciences Po, Paris (LIEPP & PRESAGE)

Anne Boring will talk us through her recent research on how COVID-19 lockdowns have exposed a shift towards more traditional beliefs in gender norms, i.e. less equal gender norms. Anne’s results suggest that beliefs in more unequal gender norms seem to be related to increases in economic uncertainty caused by the health crisis. Furthermore, she will discuss gender diversity in firms and more specifically the main diversity policies (gender quotas, mentoring and network programmes, diversity training to change firm culture, and family friendly policies) that have been implemented and their effectiveness, shortcomings, as well as potential future steps that could help guide policy.

 Panel :

  • Dr. Prof. Gülbahar Tezel, Professor of Practice in Competition and Regulatory Economics, Partner PwC
  • Ingrid Vandenborre, Competition lawyer, partner at Skadden’s Brussels
  • Dr. Anne-Claire Hoyng, Director Global Competition and Consumer law at
