Women of talent and innovation
They innovate alongside us every day...
Around the world, the Talan Group works alongside and relies on talented women, who work every day for a humanistic practice of technology and shape innovation in their own way. Within our workforce or with our customers, these women inspire us.
On the occasion of International Women's Day, we have decided to draw up portraits of some of these women to understand their profession, their career path, their vision of the digital sector, new technologies and innovation.
Throughout the year, this page will display new testimonials from women from all backgrounds who work for equality, diversity, parity and a better inclusion of women in digital professions.
Portraits, testimonials and perspectives

Cécile Lafon, Partner at Talan Consulting: “the next shift of consulting partners is already here, with women on board! ”
Brigitte Gouarin, "Change & Optimization" Practice Leader: “Live each day as if it were the last, so as not to find out at the time of my death that I had not enjoyed life”.

Work in favour of team diversity at Talan and for greater inclusion of women in digital professions.
Women are still under-represented in digital professions. Today, 36% of our workforce consists of women. Alongside the Femmes@Numérique foundation and the Quelques Femmes du Numérique association, Talan highlights role models that enable young girls to identify and dare to get started. The Group regularly organises internal and external discussion spaces to raise awareness of gender diversity issues, via MOOCs, presentations at events such as VivaTech or dedicated evenings.
The "Nos femmes ont du Talan" community (meaning "our women have talent") , initiated internally and bringing together more than 350 employees, both men and women, also aims to promote female profiles and work towards greater gender diversity in the company.
We also support the "Women and Science" Chair at Paris-Dauphine University, which highlights scientific work carried out by women, and has also set up a mentoring programme with PWN.
