5 women were nominated in the Women Engineers category, which aims to highlight inspiring and committed female engineers.

Hélène Harikiopoulos-Cordova graduated from Centrale Nantes in 1997, having specialised in Civil Engineering. In 2021, she founded Consequally, a consultancy that helps companies promote gender diversity within their organisations, and develop and enhance their commitments to workplace equality.

Since 2021, she has also headed up the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commission of Centrale Nantes Alumni and piloted the project 5050-Agir pour l'égalité, which aims to raise awareness, train and inspire alumni on the issues of equality and inclusion.

Workplace equality is a major social and economic issue if we are to meet the challenges of climate and digital transition and move our world towards a fairer, more sustainable model.
And like all major issues, it requires a certain amount of expertise to support organisations and individuals in this paradigm shift.
