Some findings from Societe Generale SA in France:

  • A four-year budget (2019-2022) of €10M has been dedicated eliminating the unjustified wage gap between women and men.
  • In accordance with the requirements of the French “Loi Avenir” of 5 September 2018, that aims to eliminate wage disparities between women and men, Societe Generale SA in France has published its Gender Equality Index score, which stands at 86 out of a maximum score of 100 for the 2021 financial year. It is calculated based on 5 indicators provided by the legislation:
The earnings gap 36/40 - The difference in rates of individual salary increases 20/20 - The gap in promotion rates 15/15 - Pay increase upon return from maternity leave 15/15 - Parity across top 10 highest salaries 0/10

The level of our Gender Equality Index is a reflection of our continuous efforts to fight against inequalities and encourage the promotion of women to high corporate positions.
