On Friday 27th of May, the FDA paid a visit to the beautiful city of Chartres to support a Paris V debating project in partnership with the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Chartres, the Chambre du Commerce et de l’Industrie de Chartres, and the Education Nationale.

10 students of the ICC debated the motion “This House would institute a quota of women in the Boards of Directors of major companies”.

The jury, which included the President of the CCI, the President of the TGI, the Procureur de la République, Mr le Bâtonnier de Chartres, and the Recteur d’Académie, gave the victory to the Proposition.

We hope that this event becomes an annual tradition, and thank Mr Jean-Baptiste Carbières – FDA Veteran and Juge d’Instruction près du TGI de Chartres – for this wonderful initiative!
