Ana Bella Estevez at EVE 2012, Iman Bibars at EVE 2013… One works along with her Foundation, on restoring confidence to female victims of domestic violence by offering them rewarding professional opportunities. The other chairs an organization to fight against poverty, providing microloans and legal aid to underprivileged women in the developing world.

Both made dramatic waves throughout the assembly when they spoke at the plenary session in Evian.

Both were discovered by the organizers of the EVE Program through the Danone Ecosystem Fund.

As a partner of the EVE Program, L’Oréal is one of the major international groups most committed to promoting professional equality and women in leadership. L’Oréal didn’t wait for “diversity management” to become fashionable to post record figures for salary parity and attributing management positions to men and women in equal measure. L’Oréal has long considered that diversity in human resources is a strategic lever for performance and growth.

To talk about this, we met with Jean-Claude Le Grand, Director of International HR Development and Corporate Diversity Director at L’Oréal.
