SES-imagotag to further strengthen commitment to gender equality in signing UN Women's Empowerment Principles
SES-imagotag continues its commitment to advancing opportunities for women in the workplace .
SES-imagotag has recently adopted the United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles as part of its commitment to promoting gender equality and women's empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.
Established by UN Global Compact and UN Women and in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Women's Empowerment Principles were established to offer businesses practices in a multistakeholder approach that empower women.
Adopting the seven principles is the best way that businesses can deliver on the ambitions for gender equality and women's empowerment as outlined in the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. These include equal pay for work of equal value, gender-responsive supply chain practices and zero tolerance against sexual harassment in the workplace.
Today,?we are very proud of the progress we are making as a diverse and inclusive employer, and,?therefore extremely proud to support the United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles to drive positive change:
“ Part of the United Nations Global Compact initiative, SES-imagotag has a long-standing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We are deeply committed to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in the workplace. For this reason, our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Program has a specific focus on gender equality to ensure that women have the resources and equal opportunities to learn, evolve and grow at SES-imagotag. Through this program, we developed an individual axis with mentoring, leadership training and individual development plans designed to boost women's careers within the company. I am proud to have signed the CEO statement of support and stand with the other companies to foster business practices that empower women ”, Thierry Gadou, Chairman and CEO of SES-imagotag.
