Courses on gender
The Programme for Research and Education on Gender (PRESAGE) is instrumental in making reflection on gender issues a part of all the institution’s activities. Gender is addressed as a cross-cutting issue in the courses taught at Sciences Po, and several courses are specifically focused on gender equality.

Promoting gender equality through career guidance
Even today, women students continue to opt for lower-paying sectors or jobs despite being just as talented as our male students—sometimes more so (see the graduate employability survey). Faculty members have an active role to play in combating gender stereotypes affecting career choices among their students.
