They move Normandy

Norman guest in the lead 2018

Elles bougent en Normandie is a network of around 150 women and a few men, around twenty business partners (Safran, Schneider Electric, Thalès, EDF, Engie, Renault, Total, Valéo, Plastic Omnium, ArianeGroup, etc.), industries (NAE , Normandie Energies) and engineering schools (ESIGELEC, CESI, INSA and ENSM) and also mobilizes a school club (46 members).
The network carries out actions with girls (schoolgirls, high school girls and students) in order to encourage them to follow technical and scientific training then to integrate the relevant jobs for more diversity and more feminization. They move acts in the orientation in order to give to the girls a broader vision of the possibilities of studies (not only medicine, help to the person, early childhood…).
Elles bougent intervenes in schools and engineering schools on energy, digital, etc. and takes its members to visit trade shows (Paris Motor Show, Paris Air Show).
The actions are carried out by godmothers (active engineers and engineering students) who testify to the girls.
The message of the network: it is doable, you have to dare, you have to want, not to underestimate yourself,… and to be reassured.
They move and meet around 2500 young people a year.
