No woman should see her ambitions limited, tormented or reaching a ceiling. To instil change, our Group does not merely settle with a narrative: it is committed to concrete objectives that foster equality.
Eradicating limitations on women's ambitions
Providing a fairer salary policy and promoting more women to managerial positions are two key areas of our equality commitments. For example, the Shadow Comex of under-35s, equally represented by both genders, is one way to encourage the emergence of female talents in positions of responsibility.
In 2015, AccorHotels became the first and only hotel group to officially join the HeForShe solidarity campaign initiated by UN Women. We're proud to be one of the project's ten pilot companies and are making active efforts to promote gender equality and set an example. A mentoring programme has also been set up internally. Indeed, the WAAG (Women at AccorHotels Generation) network aims to combat sexist stereotypes and enhance the employability of our female talents. Our unique approach is to ensure that actions to foster gender equality are driven by both women and men.
Women in the spotlight
Every year, to mark International Women's Day, AccorHotels rolls out a variety of actions worldwide and mobilises its employees to foster equality. In 2015, our teams took part in this major initiative, under the HeForShe banner, by highlighting their vision of equality.
These commitments are accompanied by one fundamental objective: changing mentalities. This endeavour, which forms part of a longer-term perspective, is reflected in our managerial policy, as well as in the adaptation of our offerings and services. The hotel industry, particularly the business hotel industry, is traditionally managed by men, for men. In response to the growing numbers of women among our guests and the diversification of our propositions, we need to devise tailored offerings that are designed for women and meet their particular expectations. This is the rationality adopted by our luxury brand MGallery by Sofitel, which has developed a specific offering called "Inspired by Her".

Diversity & Inclusion
Welcoming others, give recognition, drawing on their differences and valuing them: those are the founding principles of our managerial ethics, which are both rooted in our DNA and the key to our Group success.
AccorHotels Ethics & Compliance
We are intent on uniting and developing all of our teams around a common philosophy, constituting the basis for our ethical commitment and expressing the unique personality of AccorHotels.
