According to the French law of September 5, 2018, and its application decree of January 8, 2019, on "Freedom to choose your professional future" (Liberté de choisir son avenir professionnel), companies have to measure five gender equality indicators and publish their overall score. The primary aim of this law is to eliminate compensation discrepancies between men and women.

Furthermore, the law to accelerate economic and professional equality between men and women from December 24, 2021 (called the Rixain Law) created a new requirement to have women in the executive bodies of companies with over 1,000 employees. Within Safran, the policy on the professional advancement of women, their access to positions of authority, the identification of talent, and assistance with professional development are priorities that we have also extended to our relations with engineering schools and universities in the past few years.

Within Safran Aircraft Engines, 2021's indicators relating to gaps in representation between women and men in positions of greater responsibility are as follows:

  • Percentage of senior executives who are women and men, respectively: 16 % / 84 %
  • Percentage of members of executive bodies who are women and men, respectively: 25 % / 75 %

Given the actions continuously undertaken in 2021 and 2022, the results achieved to date* are continuing to improve:

  • Percentage of senior executives who are women and men, respectively: 19 % / 81 %
  • Percentage of members of executive bodies who are women and men, respectively: 25 % / 75 %
