Developing the place and impact of women in the economy

After creating the “Femmes de Bretagne” business start-up support network in 2014, followed by its national counterpart “Femmes des territoires”, in 2016 Marie Eloy founded BOUGE TA BOITE (literally, “boost your business”), a business network for working women managers, aimed at concurrently developing their leadership sales and skills.

Today, BOUGE TA BOITE brings together 1,800 “Bougeuses” (i.e. women “boosters”) who meet every 15 days in 115 French towns and cities, as well as organising monthly meetings in each French department. In addition, the network offers training, discounts and a very active digital community, with 30,000 messages exchanged every month.

Since 2020, based on its expertise in collective intelligence, BOUGE TA BOITE has developed, via BOUGE TON GROUPE, a range of tailor-made, Qualiopi-certified training courses for companies and local authorities seeking to facilitate women’s careers and develop professional equality. Delivering support to some 3,000 women, the training courses are geared towards efficiency and results. 92% of employees change their posture after the training, and 70% are mobile in their job. BOUGE TON GROUPE supports companies in the agri-food, media, finance and construction sectors, as well as committed local authorities in France and abroad.
