Our commitments: Activities in favor of diversity

Two men working together

AREVA’s commitment to diversity may be seen in concrete facts and actions. A few examples, chosen from many:

1. Human Resources

  • The number of women hired doubled from 2004 to 2010.
  • In 2010, 87 disabled workers were officially recognized as such and 64 interns and work/study participants with disabilities were hired.
  • In 2010, an action plan for seniors led to 200 career reviews.
  • A special budget was set up for equal pay.

2. Raising awareness

  • Every year, a European Disabilities Week is held.
  • Every 2 weeks, information sheets are shared with employees on the topic of diversity.
  • The new hires receive information on the group’s diversity policy.

AREVA has no hesitation about cracking down on discrimination. In addition to legal penalties, a person found to have practiced discrimination is subject to internal sanctions ranging from warnings to dismissal.
