Following a Groupwide audit, we realise that we still have a lot to do, and we are in the process of implementing an ambitious D&I strategy around 3 axes: Connect - Create a work environment free of prejudice and discrimination, in which each employee is responsible of his behavior; Educate- To anchor our culture of diversity and inclusion by promoting partnerships and building an internal training path; Act- Implement impactful actions throughout the employee's career cycle."
