Caroline Vignollet, R&D Software Director, based in La Ciotat, has been awarded the French Women of Industry trophy in the R&D and digital category by French tech magazine, L’Usine Nouvelle.
Caroline oversees the work of 500 engineers from 30 different nationalities in 11 countries, many of them men, but says, “Diversity is recognized as a true value by men and digital is a world where women are accepted.”
The second edition of the awards was held in Paris on 18 September. The aim of the trophy is to put women who “invent new products, lead major projects, push back the boundaries of production, found companies and manage finance” in the spotlight. Around 200 names were submitted, and the jury nominated 30 women in ten categories.
Our congratulations go to Caroline for her remarkable career and for winning this prestigious award, and our thanks go to the other candidates from Gemalto who were up against some very tough competition.
