TERREAL partners with the Elles Bougent association

In late 2019, we signed a partnership agreement with the association Elles Bougent to promote scientific and engineering professions to young girls and women and thus break down stereotypes about industrial jobs.

Contexte


Convinced that gender equality and diversity are real factors of success and performance, TERREAL has been increasing its actions and promoting meetings on these issues for several years (Carrefour des Carrières aux féminin – FETE, special gender equality evening in the town of Suresnes, etc.).

Actions


In late 2019, we signed a partnership agreement with the association Elles Bougent to promote scientific and engineering professions to young girls and women and thus break down stereotypes about industrial jobs.

 

We have a dual ambition through our partnership with Elles Bougent:

- to invest actively in promoting industrial jobs among women by allowing our female employees to share their experience and bear witness in order to stimulate new career interests and thus...

-... find our talent of tomorrow.

 

In 2020, before the Covid-19 pandemic interrupted the scheduled events, TERREAL mentors were able to participate in two forums organized in Paris and Toulouse. In December 2020, four TERREAL mentors took part in Sciences de l’ingénieur au féminin (Engineering Sciences for Women) in order to showcase their profession to female students attending colleges and high schools located near our plants.

 

In 2021, throughout the year, our mentors have been mobilized during forums dedicated to orientation, open days in Colomiers plant during the Industry Week, meetings in colleges and high schools. In regions, our mentors were active within the “Crossroads of Women's Careers” (Carrefour des Carrières au Feminin) network. 

 

New events are already scheduled for 2022.
