A political training program
Political and electoral technique
New vision of political leadership
Highly experienced guests
In order to prepare for political responsibilities, participants have listed and solicited feedback from renowned women.
To date*, leading women politicians have responded positively to these invitations: former Government members, such as Cécile Duflot, Najat Vallaud Belkacem and Axelle Lemaire, European and French MPs, such as Manon Aubry and Paula Forteza, as well as political leaders such as Sandrine Rousseau and Mathilde Pousseo.
Many women experts also offered their insights and recommendations. Among them, we would like to thank Karina Auger, Lauren Bastide, Marion Beauvalet, Julia Cagé, Julia Castanier, Maud Choquet, Caroline Delboy, Lise Deshautel, Elsa Foucraut, Caroline De Haas, Nayla Ajaltouni, Nora Hamadi, Trinité Laroche, Charlotte Marchandise, Camille Pène, Caroline Prak, Natalie Rastoin, Sandra Régol, Cécile Renouard, Chloé Ridel, Gislaine Salmat, Mathilde Viot, Annabel Hervieu, Elisabeth Dau and Averill Roy (on behalf of the Feminize Politics Now and the European Municipalities Network).
We are grateful to each of them for their valuable and high quality advice and expertise, in their own name and guided by a strong tradition and spirit of sisterhood.

Mutual aid & knowledge sharing
Our common rules
Compassionate and active listening
Open, transferable, replicable
The Investies’s journey started with a small cohort, although newcomers have joined the group since its beginnings, we’ve tried to maintain a human scale. Unfortunately, since the launch, it hasn’t been possible to include new impressive, inspirational women who’ve heard about the group. This is the reason why we’re documenting the experience: we would like to share it with all the other women who would have been a perfect fit to join the programme.
Forward, all the resources produced during the programme will be shared for free. If other circles of women wish to get prepared and train themselves to practice politics, we’re committed to supporting the launch of similar programmes. We will share the contents and the methodologies developed for them to take ownership of those and we hope to enrich them.
