Networks to promote diversity

Created in 2010, the WiN network (Women in MerseN) brings together male and female Group employees who want to work together to promote cooperation and mutual assistance, encouraging growth through greater diversity. In 2019, a Europe-wide network was launched giving new opportunities to meet and reflect on these matters.

The Diversity Committee and the WiN network work to promote the local initiatives already in place. 

The teams were particularly committed to International Women's Day!

The Group has a target of reaching 27%  women in senior management positions by 2025.
