Open to all Solvay and Polytech alumni, both men and women!

The topic of the day will be to understand whether it is necessary to change your behaviour to get (and to stay!) to the top.  Our distinguished guest speakers Marie-Noelle Godeau, Sarah Scaillet, Marleen Vaesen and Hilde Vernaillen will address this subject during an open panel discussion, open to both men and women.

Since its early days, Linklaters has recognized the responsibility that every business has in representing the diversity of their people, clients and communities.  In this perspective, Linklaters launched the Women War Stories series in an effort to create an inclusive culture.

This year, Linklaters celebrates its 50th anniversary in Belgium and is proud to reinstate a special edition of the Women War Stories in collaboration with the women network of Solvay Schools Alumni and the Ecole Polytechnique of Brussels.
