Yes to inclusion and equal opportunities

The company must reflect the society in which everyone lives.

The company must reflect the society in which everyone lives.

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.

Fostering the integration of people with disabilities

Today in France, more than 12 million people live with a disability, whether visible or invisible. With 1,200 disabled employees, Sanofi has made disability a priority in order to build a more inclusive society and a more successful company.

Through our Disability Agreement, we are committed to :

  • maintain employment
  • recruiting
  • raise awareness to change the way people look at disability in the company
  • develop collaboration with the Protected and Adapted Work Sector
  • promote accessibility.

Commitment to the LGBT+ community

Commitment to the LGBT+ community

Allowing everyone to be themselves is first and foremost about fostering a serene working environment. At Sanofi in France, the objective is and remains the inclusion of all diversities within the company.

SANOFI in France has made a commitment by signing the LGBT+ charter of "L'Autre Cercle”

Despite strong awareness over the last ten years, much remains to be done to fight discrimination against LGBT+ people. By signing the LGBT+ Commitment Charter of "L'Autre Cercle" for France, by offering support on inclusive management, but also training on cognitive biases, Sanofi reaffirms its commitment to equal rights to include all diversities within the company.

  • 1 in 4 LGBT people have experienced at least one LGBT phobic attack in their organization
  • Only 1 in 2 LGBT people are 'visible' in their work environment Date of signature of the charter - November 2020

Favoriser l’emploi des jeunes

Accompagner l’emploi des jeunes est une priorité pour Sanofi. Au-delà des forums métiers auxquels il participe ou des partenariats avec des écoles, Sanofi a un engagement fort en faveur de l’alternance et des stages et agit pour l’emploi des jeunes issus des quartiers populaires, via l'engagement PAQTE.

Place d’avenir

Savez-vous que 71 % des jeunes s’autocensurent, dont 60% par sentiment de manque d’expérience ?

En effet, le secteur du médical effraie davantage les jeunes du fait de l’image d’un secteur très technique et d’un métier à vocation qui nécessite de longues et difficiles études.

C’est pourquoi chez Sanofi, nous avons créé « Place d’Avenir ». Un évènement renouvelé pour la seconde année consécutive et qui a lieu partout en France (7 villes en 2021).

Une tournée évènementielle pour aller à la rencontre des jeunes talents, notamment dans les Quartiers Prioritaires de la politique de la Ville (QPV) pour leur présenter Sanofi, nos métiers et leur proposer 1600 alternances et 700 stages.

Place d’avenir

Sanofi propose des sessions de job dating, de coaching et invite les candidats à découvrir les nombreux métiers du groupe en France. Ce tour de France s’inscrit pleinement dans le cadre du plan gouvernemental "1 jeune, 1 solution" et représente une très belle opportunité pour plus de 150 collaborateurs Sanofi de valoriser leur métier auprès de jeunes en recherche d’alternance.

Passeport formation

Depuis 2021, tous nos jeunes talents, sans exception, à travers notre “Politique Jeunes” bénéficient d’un accompagnement personnel pour une meilleure insertion professionnelle à travers l’alternance qui est la voie d’excellence vers tous les métiers de l’industrie santé.

Ainsi, pour protéger et renforcer la formation des jeunes et leur employabilité, le « Passeport Formation » a été mise en place pour former les jeunes talents et leur permettre d’acquérir une formation complémentaire alliant le savoir-faire et le savoir-être.

C’est une formation de 36 heures en partenariat avec le Collège de Paris qui se clôture par à un stage immersif de 4 jours sur le management d’équipe et le Leadership ainsi qu’une expérience militaire ou de mise en situation pour apprendre la gestion de crise.


Careers days

  • Un forum des métiers et de l’emploi 100% virtuel.

  • 2 jours pour favoriser l’insertion des jeunes. Des sessions lives pour obtenir des conseils pour développer leur réseau professionnel et travailler leur personnal branding.

  • Une connexion avec 40 entreprises partenaires de l’écosystème santé pour leur présenter leurs métiers et leurs offres.
