Professional equality

As a Établissement Public à caractère Scientifique, Culturel et Professionnel under the supervision of the Ministry in charge of Industry, the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris – Mines Paris is fully committed to the momentum generated by the November 30, 2018 Agreement on Professional Equality between Women and Men in the Civil Service.

As such, the School has capitalized on the measures it has already been applying for several years on this subject and, in coherence with PSL University, has set up an action plan for professional equality between women and men.

In order to guarantee equal/equitable treatment between women and men, this plan aims to:

  • Assess, prevent and, where necessary, address pay gaps between women and men.
  • Prevent and deal with discrimination, acts of violence, moral or sexual harassment and sexist behaviour;
  • Guarantee equal access for women and men to civil service bodies, grades and jobs;
  • Promote work-life balance.

See the action plan

Mines Paris – PSL has a gender equality officer. The School promotes professional equality between women and men for all its staff and students.
The person in charge of gender equality can be contacted for all questions relating to gender equality and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Requesting a change of first name in use
