In March 2023, Euronext proudly signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles, a roadmap for business sustainability, innovation, and productivity.
By signing these principles, which result from a collaboration between the UN Global Compact and UN Women, Euronext is committing to the corporate delivery on gender equality dimensions of the 2030 agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, while working collaboratively in multistakeholder networks to foster business practices that empower women.
Equality Means Business
Subtitled “Equality Means Business”, the Principles subscribed by Euronext emphasise the business case for corporate action to promote gender equality and women's empowerment:
Principle 1: Establish high-level corporate leadership for gender equality
Principle 2: Treat all women and men fairly at work – respect and support human rights and non-discrimination
Principle 3: Ensure the health, safety and well-being of all women and men workers
Principle 4: Promote education, training and professional development for women
Principle 5: Implement enterprise development, supply chain and marketing practices that empower women
Principle 6: Promote equality through community initiatives and advocacy
Principle 7: Measure and publicly report on progress to achieve gender equality
Euronext sees all forms of diversity as a key success factor of its federal model, while respecting a zero-tolerance policy for any form of discrimination. We believe that successful current and future leaders will be those who are not just able to lead high-performing teams and projects effectively, but also engage diverse teams and empower them with a focus on openness, inclusion, trust and cooperation.
By signing the Principles, Euronext aims to become an inspiration for others in its industry, by encouraging business leaders to join this movement, so that together we shape capital markets for future generations.
