Fighting gender violence

Our aim is to train women and men to build a responsible digital society. Telecom SudParis is determined to fight violence at the school. Through its action plan, the school is committed to preventing violence, creating a safe learning environment, implementing reporting systems, helping victims, and monitoring and evaluating its actions.

The listening unit

The Telecom SudParis listening unit offers support for students, doctoral students and staff who are victims or witnesses of physical, sexual or psychological violence on campus. On the Evry campus, the listening unit is jointly coordinated with IMT-BS.

The listening unit’s fields of action

  • Prevention: training for management and engineering students; information campaigns on the reporting system
  • Listening and support for presumed victims or witnesses of sexual and/or gender-based violence (SGBV): accompaniment and follow-up for people in difficulty in confidentiality and anonymity; support through assistance measures with the person’s prior agreement.

The listening unit is composed of members from Telecom SudParis and Institut Mines-Telecom Business School.

It can be contacted by email (response within 5 working days). The members listed here (ecampus access only) can also be contacted directly. The unit has no disciplinary role and cannot pronounce sanctions; that is the role of the school council.

You can contact the listening unit anonymously if you wish. All exchanges are confidential.

A virtual reality film to make people feel more concerned by these issues

A virtual reality film to make people feel more concerned by these issues

During this 10-minute immersive experience, each student sees things from the point of view of Léa, a 1st-year student who witnesses and experiences gender-based and sexual violence. Then, through an interactive quiz, the film reviews the key moments of the immersive experience to allow the viewer to learn to identify warning signs and distinguish the different situations.

The film, made by the company Reverto, is the result of work by students from Institut Mines-Telecom schools based on their personal experiences and with the help of the schools’ gender equality officers.
