The chief goal of our efforts is to prevent all forms of discrimination, making sure that each individual has the same opportunities in terms of recruitment and career advancement at the company.
Head of Diversity – Groupe Renault
Through its CSR approach, the company is committed to several fundamental social issues: gender equality, disability rights, intergenerational collaboration, freedom of sexual orientation, integration of international employees, etc.
Gender equality: ending clichés
Who says that men have to work in engineering and women in communications? And who says that gender equality is only a women’s issue? The automotive industry is changing, along with society and the professional landscape. A closer look at the group’s actions to move beyond stereotypes.
Women@renault, our plan for gender equality
At the start of 2010, Groupe Renault launched the Women@Renault plan. Based on concrete HR actions, it aims to improve the representation of women at every level and in every business within the company.
But that’s not all!
The plan also includes an internal social network with the same name. Open to all employees since its launch, this mixed gender, international network aims to change mentalities. With 5,000 members (25% men), the network promotes discussion in order to find better solutions to the question of gender equality. In short, it is a collaborative, non-militant approach to effecting change.
