PRESAGE - Sciences Po's Gender Studies Programme is a member of the Women Forward International Network which includes the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), Georgetown University, Stanford University, Harvard University, Columbia University and the National Defense University.
A Unique Team Project
Each year, Women Forward International enables Sciences Po students to participate in organisations by partnering them with multilateral institutions, corporations and nonprofits on cutting edge research that advances women.
A team of first year Master's students is paired with an organisation to complete a field research, write a report and give recommendations on a specific issue related to women's rights.
