Our approach to promoting diversities

For a decade, L’Oréal has been thinking about and working toward the creation of a diversities policy. It is founded on initiatives undertaken in three strategic areas: human resources, marketing and purchasing.

Diversity is an important issue for L’Oréal. It consists of recognizing, accepting, valuing differences and capitalizing on them to accelerate the company's growth. As the undertaking has multiple dimensions, L’Oréal prefers to talk about diversities in the plural. In this field as in others, the group started by taking initiatives, then measured the progress made to professionalize and extend the approach on an international scale.

For L’Oréal, measuring is an essential part of the approach, because it makes it possible to steer the policies being implemented in the area of diversity and in this way, to make progress in these areas. The group accelerates the deployment of its Diversities policy and its corporate values wherever it has a presence and whenever it opens new subsidiaries.
