Stéphane Marcel

What actions or commitments are you putting in place to promote women’s rights?

On the professional side, I don’t do positive discrimination, I find it insulting. We only look at the competence and if the person is suitable for the position. Since I have been at Gekko, I think that women represent 50% of the IT hires that have been made. The same goes for salaries: equal pay for equal positions and experience. On the personal side: my wife and I have always shared tasks, whether it’s housework, cooking, parenting, business decisions, etc. It’s a non-issue between us. It’s a non-issue between us in fact.

What role model has positively impacted you in your life and what is the lesson he/she has taught you?

Definitely my father. He taught me to respect people, all of them without exception.
