Through the EllesVMH program, initiated by Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH Executive Vice President Human Resources and Synergies, the Group has for the past 15 years been actively engaged in promoting and supporting the professional development of women. A host of initiatives have been introduced to achieve our goal of gender equity in Group key positions by 2025. We have already gone from 23% women in these positions in 2007 to 45% today. What’s more, some 65% of the LVMH Group’s executives and managers are women, and 18 of the CEOs of our Maisons and Divisions are women.
To accelerate this momentum, the Group is supported by thousands of women and men who are members of EllesVMH regional networks around the world. Together, they continually support career growth for women, especially during the month of March, which celebrates women’s empowerment.
EllesVMH networks around the world have been very active, giving voice to the Group’s talents during an impressive lineup of events around the theme of transmission.
