A former diplomat, Nathalie Loiseau is the director of the emblematic Ecole Nationale d’Administration.
Elle y explique que l’ambition ne doit pas être un oxymore pour les femmes, et qu’elles ne doivent pas être sommées de choisir entre leur vie professionnelle et leur vie privée.
Diplômée de Sciences Po Paris après y être entrée à l’âge de 16 ans et de l’INALCO en chinois, Nathalie Loiseau est ministre plénipotentiaire. Elle est décorée Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur et Officier dans l’Ordre National du Mérite.
In 2011, she became Executive Director of Administration at the Quai d’Orsay (French Ministry of Foreign Affairs).
As Director of ENA since 2012, despite not having studied there, she thus represents a new facet of this institution. She has since been working for diversity in the access to the school and for reforming its curriculum.
She has also published a widely acclaimed book, Have it all (Choisissez tout), in which she addresses women’s choices in their professional lives, associated with those in their personal lives.
In it she explains that ambition should not be an oxymoron for women, and that they shouldn’t have to choose between their career and their personal lives.
As a graduate of Sciences Po Paris (where she entered at age 16) and of INALCO in Chinese, Nathalie Loiseau is now a plenipotentiary minister.
She was awarded the rank of Chevalier in the Legion of Honour and Officer in the National Order of Merit.
