At Sanofi, diversity and inclusion are priorities that are an integral part of the corporate values: teamwork, courage, respect, and integrity.

Acting for parity in companies

Gender parity is an accelerator that has a positive impact on society, the success of companies and the growth of our economy. To preserve and grow our talent pool, Sanofi has been working for several years to reduce the gaps and promote the place of women within its teams and in the healthcare industry. At Sanofi, promoting parity is at the heart of our strategy, culture and values. In March 2018, Sanofi set a target of 50% male-50% female representation among its executive managers (Top 2000) by 2025. With dedicated resources, a Global Network and a Board dedicated to the subject of parity, we have put in place several actions to achieve it. We regularly measure and publish our progress. The increase in the percentage of women among our executive managers is one of the indicators used in the calculation of the variable compensation of the members of the Executive Committee.

The #StOpE initiative

In December 2020, Sanofi in France, through the #StOpE initiative, made a commitment to fight against so-called ordinary sexism in the workplace, under the high patronage of Elisabeth Moreno, Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister, in charge of Equality between women and men, diversity and equal opportunities. « We are proud to be committed alongside the partner companies of the #StOpE initiative. Sexist behavior is by no means harmless or ordinary, even if it is unconscious or masquerading as benevolence. They exclude, belittle the people who are targeted in their professional activity. At Sanofi, we believe that skills have no gender and that is why we are committed to zero tolerance of ordinary sexism in company. » Florence Cauvet, HRD France.
