Presentation of the initiative

There are not enough women in Science, Technology and Engineering sector

Due to a lack of information, of role models or because of fear or preconceived notions, few girls choose to follow a scientific and technical path. We can notice it in many companies over the world.

Girls on the Move 2018 : présentation de l'initiative

Female engineers and technicians talk with young girls from 14 to 24 years old

“Elles bougent” is convinced of the important impact of meetings and exchanges when generating vocations. Female engineers and technicians in the industry sector share their experiences and talk about the fascinating aspects of their work. Each career is different yet so fulfilling, often occurring abroad, but is very inspiring for young girls to give them concrete ideas and their fears

Girls on the Move week's goal

That's why "Girls on the move" was created. It's a day gathering female professionals in the STEM industries with  secondary and post-secondary students.

Transportation, Digital, Construction, Energy, Environment sector, etc. During March 8th week 2023, visits of industrial sites, round tables, and many other activities are organized all over France and around the world.

The goal? To show young women who are thinking about and planning their educational and professional career the diversity of professional opportunities available in the technical industries.

In France, the industrial partners of Elles bougent invite, not only to young women, but also to their parents for the first time ever, in honor of the International women day.
