Professional Women Ambassadors Day at Dassault Aviation

Saint-Cloud, France, 12 March 2015 – Dassault Aviation held a Professional Women Ambassadors Day on 12 March 2015.

Almost 200 young women from general, vocational and technological lycées spent the day at Dassault Aviation, where they were able to tour the facilities and take part in discussions with personnel from the company’s nine sites.

Dassault Aviation has undertaken to provide adolescent girls with insight into and information on technical professions and the education pathways leading to careers in these fields. For those who wish to pursue this type of profession, our company offers to help them make a plan for their education and future career.

To carry out this mission, Dassault Aviation has created a network of “Professional Women Ambassadors”. These men and women have volunteered to talk to girls in secondary school (lower and upper, i.e., collège and lycée) about the day-to-day work of engineers, technicians and operators. Their goal is to break stereotypes, enable girls not to automatically rule out these professions, and help them see all the opportunities available to women in these fields.

The Ambassadors include a number of “Women in Action” sponsors – women engineers or senior technicians who more officially represent this mission as part of our institutional partnership with the “Women in Action” (“Elles Bougent”) association, of which Dassault Aviation is a founding member.

During this Professional Women Ambassadors Day, Sandrine Bedin, first-line production supervisor at the Dassault Aviation plant in Martignas, was honored with the “Women Professionals in Industry and Technical Fields Award” by UIMM Aquitaine.
