06.11 . Prodigious Women: meet Armelle Carminati-Rabasse

Visionary, pioneer, ahead of her time. These are just a few of the words commonly used to describe Helena Rubinstein. As the founder of an impressive cosmetic empire, she never stopped innovating and developing products in order to keep up with the demands of the modern woman. The Helena Rubinstein brand recently met up with some extraordinary ladies. These "Prodigious Women" are truly inspiring and have fascinating careers. Today, we’re going to meet Armelle Carminati-Rabasse, CEO of Unibail-Rodamco.

AN INSPIRING JOURNEY TO SUCCESS

Armelle Carminati-Rabasse graduated from École Centrale Paris, a highly reputable engineering school. Although it is not unusual to see women studying here today in 2014, only 7-8% of the university’s students were female in the 1980s. Armelle never had a set career path. She simply dared to seize the opportunities that came her way. For her, failure was not an option…a mantra she has never forgotten throughout the 30 years of her career.

 ‘ACCENT SUR ELLES’: THE FEMALE BUSINESS NETWORK

For fifteen years, Armelle Carminati-Rabasse has been studying the role of women in business, and in society, starting of course with her own journey to success. Her business network ‘Accent sur Elles’ aims to bring likeminded female executives together and empower them to succeed in the world of work. The network’s objective is to help women access senior positions and allow female talent to shine. The network now boasts almost 1,200 members.

APPEARANCE COUNTS!

Appearance is critical when it comes to being one of these "Prodigious Women", as looking good can really make the difference in day-to-day situations. Armelle Carminati-Rabasse understood this from the young age of 18 when she slipped on her first pair of high-heels, increasing both her feminine charm and well-grounded confidence. And she hasn’t hung up those heels yet!

Even without a solid career plan behind her, Armelle Carminati-Rabasse left nothing to chance. Her life motto? "You’d better ask for forgiveness instead of permission. If you’re wrong, so be it, at least you’re tried! "
