The question of how we use our time and the degree of freedom we have in relation to time is an essential determinant of the progress of gender equality at work but also of our personal and professional development.
The freedom of our time is the freedom we can have to meet our private life challenges alongside our work. It is also our freedom to organise our working time in such a way that this organisation best responds to our personal challenges. And we know how much these issues are at the heart of the difficulties that a certain number of women, and in particular mothers, may encounter at key stages of their professional career.
To explore the question "My time, my freedom", I will proceed in three steps:
· We will first see how corporate time is still deeply marked by a norm of availability, which weighs daily on the freedom of men and women.
· We will then see how couples’ time is a key variable in harmonising each other's professional ambitions.
· Finally, we will see what room for manoeuvre we have to grow in freedom.
