Eutelsat joins the #StOpE initiative, Stop Ordinary Sexism in the Workplace

  • To recognize and act concretely against sexist acts at work
  • Reinforcing the Group’s commitment to diversity, one of the strong points of its CSR policy

PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

On the occasion of the International Day Against Sexism, Eutelsat (Paris:ETL) joins the #StOpE initiative which already brings together more than 150 organizations, companies, associations and universities to fight against so-called “ordinary” sexism at work.

Launched in December 2018, on the initiative of Accor, EY and L’Oréal, and placed under the high patronage of Elisabeth Moreno, Minister in charge of Equality between women and men, Diversity and Equal opportunity, the #StOpE movement is based on the signing of an act of commitment comprising eight founding points1. Companies and organizations commit by deploying, during the year, at least one of the eight priority actions within their respective structures, and share their concrete actions and best practices.

By joining this approach, Eutelsat is concretely mobilizing to help all of its employees to recognize and act against sexist acts in the workplace. The Group is thus pursuing its commitment to gender diversity, on which significant progress has been made in recent years: the company currently has more than 30% women, including among its managers and executive bodies. Women represent almost half of the people recruited in 2021 and paternity leave has been extended to the main countries in which the Group operates. Educational actions in favor of the scientific training of young girls are also carried out in collaboration with specialized NGOs.

On the occasion of the signing of the #StOpE deed of commitment, Eva Berneke, CEO of Eutelsat, declared: “The success of our Group is based on the talent of the women and men who collaborate daily on all of our sites. We are careful that our employees can build their careers and showcase their skills without restraint, fear or barrier. By joining #StOpE, we confirm our commitment to take concrete action against sexist acts in the workplace. »
