Frédéric Oudéa and Diony Lebot recognised among global champions of inclusion

For the second year straight, two members of Societe Generale's Executive Committee have been recognized by the global network INvolve for their active commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Frédéric Oudéa and Diony Lebot, respectively Chief Executive Officer and Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Group, join the OUTstanding 50 Ally Executives List for 2021.

This renewed recognition is the result of actions taken at the highest level over the past two years to create an inclusive working environment and to ensure equal rights and treatment for all staff. In 2021, Societe Generale signed the LGBT+ Engagement Charter of the French charity "L'Autre Cercle" and launched the group Societe Generale Pride & Allies on LinkedIn

"What I hope, in the long run, is that the fight against all forms of discrimination against LGBT people will no longer be a subject, because they simply would no longer exist. There's still work to be done."

"I will continue to work tirelessly to create a truly diverse and inclusive working environment where everyone feels respected and can thrive. Because diversity is a strength and drives performance. And because I will never accept that people are discriminated for who they are."
