This is yet another leap dedicated to women as the world focuses on establishing an equitable one, through the exhibition entitled ‘New Perspectives’ for changemakers in their own communities.
Cyrille Vigneron, President and CEO of Cartier International said, “At Cartier, we believe that empowering women has a multiplier effect, it helps drive economic growth and development, and benefits societies and humanity at larger.
