Catherine Gaudry, MBA 2017

Management Supervisor



As a professional, I have enjoyed the guidance of mentors, all of them men but with a keen understanding of gender politics. Female role models are often lacking on the executive level. I firmly believe that in order to succeed in achieving their full potential, women need to think critically about parity for men and women alike, and that change can only be achieved if women support each other whenever possible.

I therefore strive to hire confident women and men with a modern view of today's workplace, building teams with people who respect, support and elevate each other. I believe ESCP Europe can further empower me to contribute to a broader, long-term shift where gender stereotypes take a back seat to personal preference.

For me, the real plus of ESCP Europe is the strong commitment of the school to develop, support and mobilize female executives. Indeed, as an entrepreneur and as a woman, I highly appreciate the possibility to follow courses focusing on women in leadership, that would help me to understand how we can make a real impact in the business world.
