Diversity at Schneider Electric

Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.

There has been a lot of talk recently about identifying ways to improve our diversity within the company from a national level. I believe that having more nationally advertised roles will improve diversity, as will determining what positive diversity looks like.

There are targets for hiring. New child care and PARENTAL leave policies are being developed.

Schneider Electric has been recognised for its contribution to gender equality at the United Nations Womens Empowerment Principles (WEP) awards. It is one of 10 companies to be signed up to the HeforShe campaign. This push is seen throughout the entire business including HR related issues. Schneider is an international company. We have presence everywhere around the world. Because of this, our offices are filled with diversity of ethnicity, something which we are very proud of
