Becoming a partner of the EOP means supporting our students financially and personally, a dual commitment that is fully in line with the CSR objectives of the companies involved in the programme.
Three levels of financial support are proposed to companies wishing to join the partners’ club; companies can commit to this support for a period of between 3 to 5 years.
Employees of the partner company are mobilised at key moments in the programme to guide young people in their career paths, helping them grasp the subtle ins and outs of the professional world, build their networks, and develop their self-esteem.
Your employees at the heart of the scheme
Employees wishing to become mentors can be put in contact with students from the EOP partner high schools to help them develop their career plans. This investment is invaluable for the increasing number of students who voluntarily commit themselves to this approach: it helps them to navigate the unfamiliar professional world and clarify their ambitions for the future. 60 mentoring pairs are formed each year.
“Premier Campus” workshops in partner high schools
To reinforce the impact of the partner’s commitment to equal opportunities, it is possible to participate in workshops organised by one of the partner high schools in an urban or rural area or in a French overseas department. Your company can lead a session, in-person or remotely, focused on introducing students to professional life and the employment opportunities within your sector, and showcasing career pathways.
The annual Equal Opportunities Evening
An equal opportunity event is held each year in the autumn to celebrate the arrival of the new cohort. It is an important event in the life of Sciences Po, bringing together sponsors, students, the educational community and partner high schools. Your company is invited, and your presence at this event is valued.
The annual EOP Partners Committee meeting
Representatives of your company will be invited to this event to review the past year, outline the future of the program, and discuss the partners’ commitment.
Participation in the life of Sciences Po
As a partner, you are fully integrated into the Sciences Po community. You are invited to major events that contribute to public debate on topical issues, informed of the institution’s strategic projects, and invited to meet regularly with the Sciences Po donor community.
Your company promoted as a socially responsible recruiter
Professional encounters and networking within the company
In order for students to better understand the company and its opportunities, you are invited to meet students from the EOP, either in-person at Sciences Po or remotely. You can offer students the opportunity to discover a corporate sector and careers that are in line with the courses offered by Sciences Po. You give them the keys to understanding professional life, potential career paths and employment areas.
A meeting can also be organised on your premises with a small group of students, the format of the event to be defined together: career insights, workplace tour, CV workshop, mock interviews, etc.
Internship and employment opportunities
Your internship opportunities and job offers can be prioritized for EOP students. If summer assistant positions are available, the Diversity and Inclusion team will be able to provide them to students with the highest scholarship levels.
Visibility on our communication materials
Your company is mentioned on all communication materials related to the EOP.
Become involved as an individual sponsor
As a donor to the EOP you have many opportunities to support students. As a fully integrated member of the Sciences Po community you are invited to the annual Equal Opportunity Evening, and can organise meeting with students, offer mentoring, or sponsor a cohort.
Sponsor a year cohort
Each year, the incoming EOP class is supported by a sponsor, whether a company or an individual donor. The launch of the sponsorship is celebrated during the academic year with a major evening event under the banner of equal opportunity and inclusion. Several meetings between the sponsor and the students of the year group are organized during their studies.
The EOP class of 2021/2022 will be the 21st class in the programme.
Philippe Cabanettes, Samir Assaf, CEO of HSBC Global Banking & Markets, Chantal Gaemperlé, Director of Human Resources at LVMH, Virginie Morgon, CEO of Eurazeo, Éric de Turckheim of the Terrévent Foundation and Alexandre Bompard, CEO of Carrefour, have all been sponsors in recent years.
