Gilles Grosjean Nash  

Shortly before being involved with She Can He Can, Gilles had a conversation with a family member about the equality of opportunities for men and women, boys and girls in today’s world… and the answer he received was that this isn’t an issue any more, we’ve reached equality. 

 

However, despite the progresses of the last decades, Gilles is convinced that there is still a lot to be done to achieve the profound change in the society that is needed for true equality. That’s why he's so happy to help SCHC in its mission.

Grace, originally from Washington DC, now studies in the dual bachelor program between Sciences Po and Columbia University.

 

She is driven by a long term passion for gender equality and female leadership, which is why she joined SheCanHeCan as an intern. Grace is also an active member of the Feminist Union at Sciences Po Menton. She is excited to help develop programs and promote our goals.”to help SCHC in its mission.
