"Cats have 9 lives, so do women… how to reinvent ourselves”

    The Féminin Pluriel Geneva Team is honored to host the 6th Annual Congress and pleased to welcome you on June 14-16, 2019!



    Meeting with exceptional women at our events, and exchanging rich life experiences, made us realize how much our professional environment requires us to learn flexibility. We need to reinvent ourselves, and often more than once. What choices do we have? How do we embrace our lives with passion and creativity? There are many ways to achieve a successful “re-invention” and move to the next step. 

    Inspiring women of various origins and careers who re-invented themselves at some point through their jobs, by creating companies, or in their personal life, will share their experiences, strengths, hopes, and positive energy. At decisive moments in their lives, women need and help each other. This is what the Féminin Pluriel network is about.  

    Women's reinvention will be the underlying theme of our 6th Annual Congress.
