IWD 2023: Bureau Veritas commits to helping forge a gender-equal world
Mar. 8 2023
Gender equality is a critical aspect of Shaping a Better Workplace, one of the three pillars of Bureau Veritas’ CSR Strategy, Shaping a Better World.
On International Women's Day 2023, our BV Trust Makers worldwide demonstrated their commitment to shaping a more gender-equal world by coming together in the #EmbraceEquity pose!
BV Executive Committee in action:
BV Trust Makers all around the world:
As part of our CSR strategy, we strive to create an open and inclusive culture where differences are valued and welcomed. We promote the systematic inclusion of women in operational and management positions. This contributes to our aim of having 35% of executive leadership positions filled by women by 2025.
To steer the Group toward this goal, our teams worldwide have organized various internal leadership development programs. These are designed to help female employees develop essential skills, including people management, strategic thinking and effective communication.
Watch the video below to hear the testimonials of 3 female participants who have benefitted from such programs in different regions.
About this year's theme: #EmbraceEquity ♀️ :
The words equity and equality are often seen as meaning the same thing, but they are different:
- Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities.
- Equity means recognizing that each person has a different background and circumstances and hence different types or levels of need, and this difference is taken into consideration when we make decisions, design policies, develop programs, etc. The objective of equity is to achieve greater equality.
Collectively, let’s continue to embrace equity and Shape a Better World!
