Groupe Renault is deploying the #HeForShe movement
In 2016, Groupe Renault joined forces with UN Women, the UN entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women (UN Women Committee, France).
To encourage more employees, particularly men, to get involved in gender equality issues, the company has decides to deploy the #HeForShe solidarity movement internally. Launched by Emma Watson in 2014 as part of an impassioned speech, this movement aims primarily to challenge and overcome gender bias.
The aims is to give everybody the opportunity to play an active role, through simple, practical actions. This will help to create a supportive environment where everybody is able to express their talent and that will therefore benefit collective performance.
Because, ultimately, if diversity is a reality, inclusion (≠exclusion) is a choice !
"Because there is evidence such as equality between women and men it seems good and necessary to recall; because the joint school should lead to gender parity; because it would be a shame to deprive us of gender equality; because it would be a shame to deprive us of the right to equal opportunities; because mixed-gender schools should lead to gender parity; because we should finally stop having men's and women's jobs, men's businesses and women' businesses; because stereotypes have a hard life; You can mobilize on the HeForShe website to change attitudes and change inappropriate behaviours”, Oliver Faust, Groupe Renault CSR director.
