Gender Equality at Schneider Electric Australia & New Zealand
As a HeForShe Champion, we have committed to increasing the representation of women across our board to 40% at entry and 30% at all levels of leadership. We target 30% because we believe in the power of critical mass, i.e. 30% is the threshold at which women can have a real impact in the organisation on results, innovation and culture.
To achieve our goal, we have built our pipeline through recruitment and career development, senior leadership advocacy, inclusive policies to enable better work-life balance and education on hidden bias. Progress has been encouraging to date: women now represent 27% of our Executive Committee, 46% of our Board of Directors, and 22% of our top 1000 leaders.
