For more than 148 years, the Franco-British Chamber has offered our members a wide range of tailor-made services to help them expand their businesses on both sides of the Channel. Today our member network includes more than 2000 international companies of all sizes serving a wide range of industries. We’ve supported the Women’s Cardiovascular Healthcare Foundation (Agir pour le Cœur des Femmes) since its inception, doing our part to help the foundation tackle this health and societal emergency. For example, on International Women’s Day 2020, the foundation’s co-founder Prof. Claire Mounier-Vehier, MD, was the guest of honor at a grand event at the Maison des Arts et Métiers in Paris where she spoke to a large group of Franco-British business leaders on March 10. This memorable evening was sponsored by L’Oréal who is deeply committed to scientific research and inclusive beauty. We also hosted a webinar on April 9 in partnership with the Women’s Cardiovascular Healthcare Foundation (Agir pour le Cœur des Femmes) entitled “How to demystify, reassure and prevent COVID-19: Let’s save lives together!” for the entire Franco-British business community.
