ENGIE steps up actions to promote gender equality

By ENGIE - 19 November 2020 - 10:33

The positive impact of gender equality in the workplace is no longer in doubt. At ENGIE, gender equality is a structured policy measured by indicators. It is also a combination of actions designed to give women in the Group more visibility and the means to break through the glass ceiling. Take a look at our news.


In November, ENGIE has planned a host of events to promote gender equality within and outside the Group.


Women’s Forum: gender equality, driving an inclusive recovery 

As long-running partners in the Women’s Forum, we are taking part in the virtual edition on 17,18 and 19 November. Its theme is “Beyond recovery: designing an inclusive world”. The event brings together influential business, institutional and political leaders from the European Union to continue dialogue for an inclusive recovery. Our Deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer, Judith Hartmann, will take part in the #Women4Inclusion meeting on Thursday 19 November, from 14.35 to 15.20.

Women’s Week: an event uniting women within the Group

Created in 2008, our international internal network Women In Networking (WIN), is designed to help women grow stronger together. Every year, it organises a company-wide Women’s Week following on from International Women’s Day on 8 March. This year, as the 
Covid-19 pandemic put a stop to celebrations in March, the ENGIE 2020 Women’s Week will take place from 23 to 30 November. Among the many guests at this year’s edition are Elisabeth Moreno, French Minister Delegate for Gender Equality, Diversity and Equal Opportunities, Aurélie Jean, Doctor of Science and entrepreneur, and the film director Lisa Azuelos.
