We celebrate diversity and embrace an inclusive culture.
We pledge our unwavering commitment to the achievement of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Diversity refers to the range of human and/or organizational differences and similarities. This range includes personal dimensions of diversity related to ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical ability, as well as factors including (but not limited to) parental/family status, work experience, educational background, geographic location, organizational affiliation, and management status.
- Equity refers to fairness regarding the utilization of practices, policies, and systems maintained by the organization. At ENGIE, we seek to remedy inequities that can result from individual differences. Employees can succeed at ENGIE regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, or socioeconomic status. Employees are evaluated based only on performance results, leadership, potential, behaviors, and competencies.
- Inclusion refers to creating a work environment and culture where differences are valued, respected, and leveraged as a business enabler without bias. In an inclusive organization, all employees feel a sense of belonging. Everyone has an opportunity to contribute and achieve success at ENGIE.
ENGIE “walks the talk” with specific goals and actions.
We are proud of the ways in which our employees embody our values and offer solutions to take our organization to the next level. We all have important roles to play to effect positive change. Only by reflecting the communities we serve and embracing each individual’s unique contributions will we advance our purpose to shape a sustainable future.
ENGIE has committed to having women fill 50% of management roles across the global group by 2050.
