Encouraging talented women

34% of the Arkema's mid-level managers are women.

As part of its non-discrimination charter, the Group has set itself the goal of reaching between 23 and 25% of women among senior executives. To tackle the risk of the "glass ceiling" phenomenon, and support the advancement of women employees, Arkema recently created a mentoring program. Among the Group's leaders, volunteer "mentors" - men or women - are trained to assist their "mentees" in their career development.
