The IndustriELLES collective, relaunched on March 8, 2023, is an initiative aimed at changing the image of industry among young girls and women and attracting them to the sector. At an event in Bercy on May 23, 2023, attended by V. Hoel (IEMN) and S. Beaufils (ACSIEL), Roland Lescure, Minister Delegate for Industry, and Frédérique Le Grevès, President of STMicroelectronics France and sponsor of IndustriELLES, announced the following objectives for 2023 – 2024:
- Launch a nationwide network of ambassadors for the collective,
- Build up a pool of mentors and role models within the collective, to raise awareness among more young girls and women of careers in industry,
- Increase the sharing of best practices in terms of gender diversity between members of the collective.
The IndustriELLES collective aims to change the image of industry among young girls and women and attract them to the sector. It was relaunched on March 8, 2023 by Roland Lescure, Minister Delegate for Industry, following on from the eponymous initiative created by Agnès Pannier-Runacher.
To meet these challenges of parity and gender diversity, the collective is now recruiting new profiles, women and men, technicians and senior managers, throughout France, to become spokespersons in the media or on social networks, to mentor young girls, or to contribute to the sharing of best practices in terms of gender diversity. If you wish, you can get involved via the form on the CNI website and by joining the IndustriElles LinkedIn group.
