LVMH takes commitment towards parity
LVMH has signed on July 12, 2011 the "Women on the Board Pledge for Europe", committing to increase women's corporate boardroom presence to 30% by 2015 and to 40% by 2020.
Chantal Gaemperle, Executive Vice President, in charge of Human Resources, committed to reach this target in a meeting with EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding.
Chantal Gaemperle said: "Diversity is part of LVMH's DNA and women are present at each and every level of the Company. This Pledge reflects LVMH's commitment to the pursuit of the highest standards across all its activities. As a key driver of growth and innovation within the Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe, signing this EU Pledge is a natural milestone for the Group.
We strongly support Commissioner Reding's approach to self-regulation for Gender equality and are delighted to demonstrate this with our engagement today."
