- -“We discovered that there’s a place for women in industry, even though the general view is that it is something for men. It was great that these can be trades for women too.”
- -“ They are plenty of different skills in industry. Everybody has to make their own contribution to the whole”
- -“It’s a bit sad that even today we still need a women’s day to remind us that there are inequalities. Let’s hope that some day there will no longer be any need for it.”
- -“We clearly saw how there are lots of jobs linked to a machine and even though one tends to think artificial intelligence will eliminate jobs, in fact it creates a lot of them.”

About La Fabrique de l’industrie :
La Fabrique de l’industrie is a think tank founded in October 2011 by the UIMM, the Cercle de l’industrie and the GFI, with the GIM and Gifas coming on board subsequently, in order to expand collective thinking about industrial challenges and to improve its quality.
