Professional equality between men and women

Pursuant to French Law No. 2018-15 dated September 5, 2018 concerning the freedom to choose one’s professional future, companies with more than a required number of employees have compiled indicators to determine their level of commitment to professional equality between men and women. BPCE’s commitment in this area is reflected in a result of 94 points out of 100 in 2023. 

This index takes into account five differently weighted indicators: the gap between men and women’s pay (score: 39 out of 40), salary increases (20 out of 20), promotions (15 out of 15), salary increases upon return from maternity leave (15 out of 15), and the distribution of men and women in the ten highest pay levels (5 out of 10).

What is more, pursuant to Law No. 2021-1774 dated December 24, 2021 aimed at accelerating economic and professional equality that creates an obligation of balanced representation between women and men among senior executives and members of the management bodies of large companies, and includes an obligation of transparency in this area, BPCE has drawn up the following indicators: 

  • Senior executives: 31% women – 69% men
  • Management bodies: 33% women – 67% men
