Amelia Matar

COLORI

Amelia a grandi en Seine-Saint-Denis et a, dès son plus jeune âge, souhaité devenir entrepreneure afin d’explorer de nouveaux horizons. Elle n’avait ni mentor ni modèle et a tout fait pour intégrer une école de qualité. Cette posture ne l’a plus jamais quittée.

Passionnée de nouvelles technologies et d’innovation, elle crée COLORI en 2018 pour éduquer les jeunes enfants de 3 à 8 ans au numérique, sans aucun écran, afin d’en faire des acteurs de la transformation de la société, et non de simples consommateurs de technologie. Près de 6000 enfants ont déjà bénéficié des ateliers COLORI depuis sa création, dans près de 100 écoles réparties sur 30 villes du territoire, plébiscitant cette approche innovante de l’éducation de par la population concernée, la manière de faire et la volonté forte d’inclusion.

Guillaume Richard

OUI CARE

Oui Care offers home services to facilitate the daily lives of millions of employees in France - babysitting, gardening, childcare, assistance for people with reduced mobility, etc. The company has been committed to women from the outset with the creation of the Oui Care Solidarity Fund (it has entrusted the presidency to a woman). Its objective is to fight for violence against women and against gender inequality. Because at Oui Care 90% of the employees are women! And for Guillaume Richard, it is essential that his employees can flourish in a company whose values he shares. 

The company has also conducted with its brand O2 Care Services, a major survey on "The French and the mental load" conducted in 2018 in partnership with IPSOS. It showed that this syndrome affected 8 out of 10 women!
