Women & Science: building operational mentoring with the tools of collective intelligence


Julie Foncy

In France, since 2015, this includes the mentoring program run by Femmes & Sciences, an association that promotes science and technology and supports women throughout their scientific careers. This program offers young women who apply a free and trusted environment in a stimulating network of dedicated and experienced scientists, with whom they can discuss their career paths and choices and learn how to make the most of their skills. By taking part in professional development workshops, group meetings or mentoring circles, young women scientists can benefit from unique and personalized advice from their mentor.

Indeed, in Toulouse, the Femmes & Sciences association's program, coordinated by Julie Batut, a CNRS researcher at CBI-MCD, is associated with the University of Toulouse's CBI doctoral program, and offers mentoring open to doctoral students at the University. Since 2019, this program has included a workshop built and led by Julie Foncy, research engineer at LAAS-CNRS and internal CNRS trainer (DR14) specialized in individual and collective coaching through collective intelligence.
