For International Women's Day (IWD), Schneider Electric is reaffirming its commitment to gender equality. The company believes inclusion benefits everyone in the workforce as well as society in general.

To celebrate IWD, all employees are holding discussions to share their stories and experiences - focusing on how they help each other manage their unique life and work, and how Schneider Electric ensures wellbeing and enables a sense of belonging for all.

Women and men can be allies for gender equality

Examples of how Schneider Electric fosters a culture of inclusion and diversity include flexible working and a Global Family Leave Policy.

"Enabling flexibility at work to help both men and women to manage their unique life and work has been a long-term focus for us as an organisation. We believe that women and men should act as allies for gender equality to enable a better future for all," Schneider Electric comments.

"International Women’s Day is a reminder to celebrate women in the workplace and our personal lives. It is also an opportunity to remember that we are all unique. It is the diversity of thought, ideas and that strengthens a society and a workplace.

"At Schneider Electric we are 100 per cent committed to embracing different, meaning we welcome people from all walks of life, ages and cultures. Gender equality and inclusion benefits everyone. It enriches company culture, drives business performance and helps us achieve more in our personal and professional lives every day."
