Our actions :
In order to fight against menstrual insecurity, to promote gender equality and inclusion, the Feel Good and RSE teams are implementing:
- 12 distributors of sanitary protections, in partnership with Marguerite & Co, in the toilets of all school buildings to give you access to eco-responsible hygienic protections when you need them. This action is co-financed by the Brittany Region
- A round table on menstrual insecurity: what are the challenges in student and professional lives, on September 28 at 6 p.m. in Lecturer Hall 0.1 in Building 1
