Legrand Press release
From March 4th to 8th, 2013, Legrand organised a week of events for its employees, aimed at raising awareness of the issues related to equal opportunities in the workplace. Topics such as mixed gender access to professions, the impact of stereotypes, and the place of women within the Group were all touched on in the course of this week, which concluded on March 8th - International Women's Day - with the publication of a webzine dedicated to women, comprising contributions submitted by Group employees of both sexes.
This initiative enabled the entire company to join in supporting Legrand's policy of encouraging gender mixity at work, through participative events including:
- the in-house webzine dedicated to women drafted by company staff and released on the Intranet on March 8th
- a 'women@legrand' Facebook page
- quizzes and surveys on workplace equality
- a street-poll
- and various other communications (computer graphics, videos, etc.)
