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.

Criterion No. 1: Difference in average salary between men and women - 39/40

Criterion No. 2: Comparison of the percentage of men and women having received a raise - 20/20

Criterion No. 3: Comparison of the percentage of men and women having received a promotion - 10/15

Criterion No. 4: Whether all women received a raise on returning from a maternity/adoption leave - 15/15

Criterion No. 5: Number of women in the top 10 paying positions - 0/10


In addition, the law "aimed at accelerating economic and professional equality between women and men" of December 24, 2021 (known as the Rixain law) creates a new obligation to increase the number of women in the management structures of companies with over 1,000 employees. At Safran, our policy of professional development for women, giving them access to positions of responsibility, identifying their potential and supporting their career development are priorities that we have also extended to our relations with engineering schools and universities for several years.
Within Safran Seats, the indicators for the gender gap in senior management positions are as follows
- Percentage of women and men among all senior managers: 5% women and 95% men
- Percentage of women and men among all members of management teams: 10% women and 90% men
