L’Oréal India has received Move Level certification from the Economic Dividends for Gender Equality for its commitment to achieving and sustaining gender equality in the workplace. The certification is the second step in EDGE’s accreditation process, with L’Oréal India having received the sought-after award for the first time in 2015.
“For L’Oréal, gender diversity at the workplace has a business imperative and we are incredibly proud to be certified for the second time by EDGE,” said Roshni Wadhwa, Human Resource Director. “Achieving workforce gender equality is not just a cultural benefit but also gives us a competitive edge in driving innovation and attracting talent. We are honored to receive this recognition and strive to be the role model in building a culture of equal leadership.”
Having reached a 50:50 male-to-female balance across the workforce at its corporate office, the company’s next goal is to balance its leadership, where women currently account for 33 percent – the French beauty giant has set 2020 as the goal to reach gender parity.
