Gender equality in ParisTech's schools
ParisTech took stock of gender equality (6 schools replied).
While Chimie ParisTech and AgroParisTech, respectively, boast 50% and 60% of females students, other schools show a decline, with 30% of female students at the ENSTA ParisTech, 30-40% at the ESPCI Paris, 20-25% at Télécom ParisTech, and 20-30% at Mines ParisTech.
The ENSTA, Télécom and ESPCI have committed to a proactive policy (valorisation of women’s courses, raising awareness in high schools, dedicated courses). Mines ParisTech is participating in the MELIA project.
Regarding the gender pay gap upon graduation, several schools have set up coaching courses (salary negotiation), which are also open to male students.
