When a group of talented women from across Generali met in Paris, the sky was the limit

The Generali-sponsored Ballon del Paris floats over 150 metres above the rooftops of Paris.

Paris and the Generali's icon balloon were the symbolic place to open new perspectives on leadership for a group of talented women participating in the first Generali Women’s Mentoring Programme.

The group consisted of a number of senior female leaders, each paired with a younger talented counterpart from across the EMEA region.


The mentoring initiative is part of an effort to further a more diverse, inclusive environment at Generali and to forge a new community of leaders.


The mentor-mentee matches were given careful consideration based upon cultural diversity, the jobs they do and where they are located.


The Paris kick-off event was the first step in a journey, allowing participants to lay the foundations of their relationships and define how to work together and then proceed with a series of meetings over the following year.
