L’Oreal’s actions cover 4 pillars:
L’Oréal Australia have received MOVE level of EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) Certification. The EDGE assessment is the leading business certification for gender equality in the workplace that is universally applicable across industries and countries.
In 2015 L’Oréal Australia became the first company in Australia to be certified with the EDGE Gender Equality Certification (EDGE ASSESS level) and is the first company in Australia to be certified by EDGE to the second level of certification.
This certification recognises L’Oréal Australia’s leadership and commitment to create, benchmark, and support gender equity throughout the workplace. Two years after L’Oréal Australia’s first certification, it has demonstrated an inclusive culture in terms of employees’ ratings in terms of career development opportunities and improved the framework of effective policies and practices in terms of recruitment and promotion, leadership development training and mentoring and flexible working.
This level means that the company has already achieved certain milestones relating to strong gender balance across the talent pipeline, effectively implementing gender equality policies and practices, and fostering an inclusive workplace culture. It is also an opportunity to commit to further improving the company’s action plan for even greater impact.
At L’Oreal ANZ, support of employees is the absolute priority. In 2020, L’Oreal employees marched together at Mardi Gras and also became a Gold Partner of the Pinnacle Foundation.
L’Oreal Australia also celebrates #PrideMonth annually and proudly within the organisation.
