As an employer, Renault Group is aiming to offer a workplace in which everyone feels included, respected and valued, exempt of all discrimination. Actions are deployed across the Group to reinforce these ambitions through our governance, recruitment and promotion processes, managerial training and initiatives driven by our employees. Béatrice Chavanel, VP Diversity and Inclusion
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.
In 2014, the international #HeForShe movement was launched. A few years later, Groupe Renault committed to the movement internally with the UN Women France. committee. Its aim is to involve all employees, and men in particular, in questions of gender equality and diversity. It also gives men and women the opportunity to be actively involved in creating a welcoming environment. Because, ultimately, if diversity is a reality, inclusion is a choice!
Changing mentalities, freeing the word, can only be done through action! Signature of the United Nations "Free and Equal" charter, commitment to the French charter from "Autre Cercle”, creation of the internal network We'R OutStandInG in 2012, training on inclusive management, serious game on "living diversity together", participation in the Paris 2018 Gay Games,… the Group uses its influence to act positively and create a culture of diversity within the company
Half a million individuals interact within the physical and virtual workplace of Groupe Renault, our Alliance with Nissan and Mitsubishi and the day-to-day work with all our partners worldwide. We know we still have a long way to go before inclusion is reality for all without exception. But we are fully committed to this goal and we are constantly progressing towards it as we have no doubt that diversity makes us stronger.
