Our mission: Empower, Connect, Inspire
“When I joined Ardian in 1998, I had unconsciously chosen to adopt a male behavior. I wanted to be seen as very engaged, not emotional, result driven. I was trying to conform to what I thought was a male environment. Now with all the initiatives at Ardian – Ardian Women’s Club, the strong management of the HR team – I am confident that we will achieve a balance and a fruitful inclusion policy.” Lise Fauconnier, Managing Director, Ardian Buyout
“What I think is very unique about Ardian is the fact that it’s founded and led by a female president, Dominique Senequier. I had the fortune to pick her brain during my career, especially when I was about to have a family. Her wisdom gave me comfort and courage to continue to pursue a very successful career in the private equity industry and at Ardian.” Sara Huang, Managing Director, Ardian Fund of Funds
“You have to believe in yourself and you have to believe that you are much stronger than you can imagine.” Ada Wen, Senior Investment Manager, Ardian Fund of Funds
Ardian Women’s Club: highlighting the voice of women in the private equity industry
While the proportion of women in private equity has continued to rise in recent years, there is still a long way to go before they can enjoy the same career opportunities as men. The Ardian Women’s Club exists to accelerate the advance of women at all levels of the company and create the conditions in which women can prosper in private equity as readily as men.
