Celebrating our 4th year as a HeForShe Impact Champion
Celebrate the 4th anniversary of the HeForShe movement with us on September 26th. See what three bold commitments we have made as a HeForShe Impact Champion to lead change and advocate for gender equality.
Tackling Discrimination Against LGBTI People
As a global company, Schneider Electric is proud to stand up for equal rights and fair treatment for everyone, everywhere. By supporting the UN Free & Equal standards, we commit to fostering a culture of respect and equality for the LGBTI community.
In addition to our CEO, all of our country leaders have personally endorsed the UN's Women's Empowerment Principles. Schneider Electric is the first multi-national company to achieve this 100% commitment across its leadership team.
Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO, talks about how we drive gender equality both in the company and in society, through our inclusive policies, our ambition to reach 30% of women in Schneider’s top leadership, and our programs to advance women in energy automation around the world.
Diversity is our heritage and our future. Be part of it.
At Schneider Electric, diversity is an integral part of our history, culture, and identity. Inclusion is the way we treat and perceive all differences. We want to create an inclusive culture where all forms of diversity are seen as real value for the company.
Diversity & Inclusion Policy
At Schneider Electric, we want to provide equal opportunities to everyone everywhere and to ensure all employees feel uniquely valued and safe to contribute their best.
Our inclusive Global Family Leave policy supports the diverse needs of all our people. So no matter who you are, where in the world you live or how you manage your unique life and work, you can always be at your best.
Manage Your Unique Life and Work
“We are proud to be the first in our industry to make such a global commitment.” Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO
Our Global Family Leave Policy includes key life stages for welcoming a new baby, taking care of sick or elderly family members, and mourning the loss of a family member. Recognizing that definition of family, life and work are changing every day, we have defined “leave” and “family” in an inclusive way.
Committed as a UN Women HeForShe Corporate IMPACT 10X10X10 Champion
Launched on 20 September 2014 at the United Nations, HeForShe is an invitation for men and people of all genders to stand in solidarity with women to create a bold, visible and united force for gender equality. The HeForShe IMPACT 10X10X10 initiative gathers 10 head of States, CEOs, and universities on a journey to reach parity and achieve a gender equal world for all.
