” Digital technology has proven during the crisis to be the solution to boost employment and build a fairer world “

As we prepare for a deconfinement overshadowed by the threat of an economic crisis, digital technology has proven during the crisis to be the solution to boost employment and build a fairer world. While women are still in a minority in the digital world, les Margaret, these role models are making a difference and are ready to lead a new generation in their wake: the JFD generation.”, Delphine Remy-Boutang, CEO the Bureau & JFD, President GEN France.
