Imagine Foundation's WOMEN-MEN equality index

Pursuant to the Professional Future Act of September 5, 2018, Imagine publishes the results of its gender equality index within the Imagine Foundation.

 

This index evaluates the professional equality between women and men within companies in the form of an overall score out of 100 points, which each company calculates from four indicators. Below the threshold of 75 points, the company must define and implement corrective measures within three years.

The gender equality index at the Imagine Foundation is 84 points out of 100. Find here the details by indicator:

 

  • Pay gap: 39/40
  • Individual salary increase gap: 35/35
  • Percentage of employees receiving a raise after returning from maternity leave: 0/15
  • Number of employees of the under-represented gender among the 10 highest earners: 10/10

"We are satisfied with this result, which is up two points this year. We are continuing our commitment and actions to guarantee professional equality between women and men and to promote diversity and professional mix. With this in mind, we have launched an action plan dedicated to gender parity and professional equality at the end of 2021", notes Laure Boquet, General Delegate of the Imagine Foundation.
