Diversity & Inclusion White Paper

At Schneider Electric, we aim to build an inclusive company in a diverse world.

Building Inclusion

  • 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.
  • Employee Stephanie is proud of our family leave policy

    Employees Share Their Experiences

    “I’m grateful for the new family leave policy that helps keep our Schneider Electric motto “Life is On” true for new parents. I hope we inspire other companies to make diversity and inclusion an integral part of their business.”
  • Employee Sue Ellen is proud of our family leave policy

    How Schneider Electric’s Family Leave Policy Supported My Non-Traditional Family

    “Our family story was far from traditional but that didn’t make it any less special or in need of the same benefits as traditional parents.”

"Our policies are designed to support our employees to manage effectively their work-life and family needs at different stages in life. These policies support our diverse workforce and allow our employees to contribute their best and make a difference. The well-being of our staff is our highest priority and we’re proud to champion this issue as part of our goal to be best-in-class in every area of our organization."

- Annette Clayton, President and CEO, North America Operations, Schneider Electric
