THEMATIC Commitments

BNP Paribas is committed to increase gender mix in the traditionally male or female-dominated professions within the banking industry.

As part of our three-year partnership, we commit to increasing the proportion of either men or women recruited to key positions in Human Resources, which traditionally has a preponderance of female staff, and Global Markets, a field traditionally dominated by men. For example, we have a target of 40 per cent female employees participating in Graduate and Talent programmes for financial markets activities over the period. We will also reach out through the HeForShe programme and the United Nations to women entrepreneurs working to develop renewable energies in Africa and India.
