LVMH launched the EllesVMH program in 2007 to support gender balance at every level of the organization. In 2020, LVMH is breaking new ground with its first ever radio program, available to all employees worldwide via SHERO, an internal media created to support women in their careers at the Group. Hosted by journalist Marie Drucker along with Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH Executive Vice President Human Resources and Synergies, the program presents the ambitions and innovative initiatives taken by LVMH and its Maisons to promote gender equality. Also being released is a new podcast series called “Tips to the Top”.
LVMH has made gender parity a top priority. This is a natural commitment for a Group whose workforce comprises over 73% women. A new radio program called Echo Day promotes the many actions pursued as part of the EllesVMH initiative. Created in 2007, EllesVMH supports the professional growth of women in all positions and at every level of the Group.
This commitment extends to top management positions, targeting a 50/50 balance between women and men in 2020. Echo Day is an opportunity to spotlight the many initiatives taken over the past 14 years during a conversation between Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH Executive Vice President Human Resources and Synergies, and journalist Marie Drucker.
EllesVMH Echo Day this year features the voices of feminine talents at LVMH. The radio program includes interviews with women from LVMH, as well as representatives of Maisons that won this year’s Inclusion Index Awards, which recognize top initiatives to strengthen diversity and inclusion at LVMH Maisons.
LVMH women’s voices will also be celebrated in a series of 12 podcasts, available starting today. Produced for both internal and public audiences, the podcasts present inspiring women from the Group who recount the day when they made a decision that really launched them on their career path. Entitled “Tips to the Top”, the podcasts are produced by journalist Karine Le Loët. For this celebration of women in March, LVMH is honoring the Group’s feminine talents, some of whom hold jobs that are not necessarily associated with women.
The diversity of métiers and regions around the world represented in the podcasts mirrors the wealth of the LVMH Group and the contribution of this diverse array of talents to its performance.
