You are different, you are unique, and it gives us energy! We draw our strength from the uniqueness of every employee. So, be yourself – the others are already taken! The global TotalEnergies community is multicultural by nature, made up of close to 160 nationalities in some 130 countries. We are open to all talents, regardless of origin, background, age, gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, disabilities, etc. TotalEnergies offers equal opportunity, with no discrimination.
We welcome your difference
Diversity is our strength and one of the keys to our success. It is the multitude of your skills, acquired in various settings, that has allowed us to meet and surpass all sorts of challenges in the past, and they will do the same as we develop the energies of tomorrow. Feminization and internationalization of our teams is encouraged at all levels of our organization, and in all professions, both in hiring and all along our career paths. This policy is supported at the highest level and promoted by the Diversity & Inclusion Council which is chaired by a member of the Company's Executive Committee.
Our objectives :
Committed to gender equality
To break the glass ceiling, we are expanding the number of women at all levels of the Company by ensuring that the same proportion of women and men with the same qualifications and experience are promoted. In hiring, we are aiming for parity among managers, with a special focus on increasing the number of women in our technical and business professions. We are committed to complying with the principle of equal professional opportunities and wages for women and men. In 2010, TotalEnergies signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles – Equality Means Business defined by the United Nations Global Compact. TotalEnergies has also made a pledge at the World Economic Forum by signing the appeal Closing the Gender Gap – a Call to Action.
In 2022, 24% of senior managers in the Company were women. Our goal is 30% by 2025.
The TWICE network
In 2006, an employee took the initiative to create our international TotalEnergies Women’s Initiative for Communication and Exchange (TWICE) network. With 5,000 members today, TWICE actively contributes to the development of gender diversity and career growth for women in the Company – particularly towards positions of responsibility – through sharing of best practices, mentoring, and career development workshops. Since 2018, the TWICE@Digital initiative has connected women working in digital professions in the Company, and raised awareness of digital technology, so that everyone can learn about the transformations under way and the impacts on their professions.
Abroad on board
It's in our DNA: With operations in close to 130 countries and a workforce made up of 160 nationalities, our teams are international and very culturally diverse. In 2022, more than 80% of our new hires and 60% of our newly recruited employees and managers with higher levels of education and similar were non-French. We have taken many tangible measures to promote this internationalization, including specific courses, integration and personal development training organized in our major regional hubs, such as Houston, Johannesburg and Singapore, and expatriate postings for nearly 3,000 employees, representing more than 100 nationalities, in some 100 countries.
In 2022, more than a third of our senior managers were non-French. Our goal is 40% by 2025.
Included all together!
Diversity means “being invited to the dance”. Inclusion, even better, means “dancing together”! We recognize the uniqueness of everyone by promoting a work environment in which you can feel free to be yourself. No need to hide your country of origin, roots, socio-economic status, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, political opinions, etc. Expressing your individuality allows others to express theirs, with mutual respect. We are committed to building a workplace where everyone feels included, respected, and valued, without leaving anyone behind – meaning, that you can simply focus your energy on giving your best.
We cultivate inclusion
Inclusion doesn't just happen, it has to be cultivated. That's why we raise awareness and train our employees and managers to change mentalities and promote being open-minded. One way we do this is with our Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Days organized all around the world. In 2022, we launched a major initiative called Inclusion Talks to raise awareness through examples; these monthly events give employees and external speakers an opportunity to share their differences. Our recruitment teams are also trained to practice non-discrimination and recognize unconscious bias.
Difference = tolerance
We provide a practical guide to all employees in ten languages that explains religious traditions and promotes tolerance towards different beliefs in an everyday environment. We also raise employee awareness about non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender equality. In France, in 2023, the Company reaffirmed its stance by re-signing L'Autre Cercle's LGBT+ Commitment Charter, which provides a framework for combating workplace discrimination of individuals identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or other.
Disabilities concern us all
One person out of two is confronted with disability during their life. We do everything in our power to ensure that it does not impact your situation at work. We promote integration, support, and continued employment for disabled individuals throughout their careers. We go beyond our legal obligation in each country, based on five priority principles: respect for and promotion of individual rights, non-discriminatory policies and practices, accessibility, maintained employment and confidentiality. We also train our managers to change their way of looking at and handling disabilities. Our Company has signed the International Labour Organization's (ILO) Global Business and Disability Network Charter and The Valuable 500 global initiative that works to put disability on the roadmaps of multinational corporations.
