Diversity is at the heart of our Group and is one of our most important commitments because our businesses are built on passion, creativity and talent and because all forms of artistic creation stem from a variety of origins and ideas.
Talent diversity, in particular, is a source of creativity that drives the Vivendi Group’s performance. All our business units are committed to equal opportunity for all employees, both current and future.
Equality between women and men is one of Vivendi’s core commitments, supported by the Supervisory Board and all the Group’s businesses. 51% of Group employees are women and 49% of managers are women.
Women now represent 35% of the Vivendi Executive Committee, with the objective of reaching 40% in 2020.
One woman’s appointment to Vivendi’s Management Board is expected before the end of 2020, and another will be appointed in 2021. Vivendi SE’s occupational gender equality index stood at 84 out of 100 points for 2019.

Integrating persons with disabilities (whether physical or mental) and combating discrimination against them are important principles within the Group. All business units have committed to these principles by implementing a responsible and sustainable policy, including awareness-raising campaigns for employees and managers, as well as by partnering with associations to foster the employment and integration of persons with disabilities.

Vivendi firmly believes that the Group’s greatest strength is a direct result of the dedication of the women and men it employs and that each person’s talent contributes to its success. Therefore, the Group strives to offer all employees experiences, career paths and development actions that are in line with their aspirations, with the aim of encouraging sharing, agility and cross-functionality, thus providing opportunities for expression and creativity.
To this end, the HR teams at Vivendi and all its business units are implementing various actions to identify and attract talented people and to develop and retain them.
