Gender equality

For more than the past 10 years, and in keeping with its values, Egis has continuously acted in favour of gender equality in the workplace by implementing a dynamic and proactive diversity policy.

This approach has led to a 5% increase over four years in the proportion of women in management functions, i.e. 32% of managers at the end of 2020, whilst also promoting equal opportunities in terms of career advancement.

The gender equality index introduced by the French Government in 2018 measures companies’ performance in this area.

For 2020, the results obtained by the Group in business perimeters with at least 50 people are as follows:

  • Major Structures, Water, Environment, Energy BU: 84 points
  • Egis SA: 93 points
  • Egis Rail: 87 points
  • Buildings BU: 84 points
  • Egis Exploitation Aquitaine: 86 points
  • Cities, Roads & Mobility BU and International Regions BU: 89 points
  • Routalis: 100 points
  • Aviation BU: 86 points
  • Consulting BU: 92 points

In 2021, we are consolidating our commitments with new impulses:  

  • We are mobilising our teams to identify and act on the obstacles to professional equality. This innovative action is part of a new Agreement negotiated with our social partners;
  • A partnership has just been established with the association Elles bougent, whose actions aim to increase gender diversity in scientific and technical professions by acting at a very early stage in the school curriculum.
