As the ‘Bank for a Changing World’, BNP Paribas’ goal is to accompany our clients as they navigate new business practices and the changes these bring. We are thus extremely honoured to be a strategic partner to the Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society. We aim to bridge humanity as a means to generate a positive impact on global social and economic issues, and we can all make this real through the vision of exceptional women and through concrete actions to advance gender parity and mitigate climate change. BNP Paribas believes that creating a respectful environment which offers equal opportunities to all employees is a fundamental prerequisite for any successful organisation. The Group's commitment to climate research and biodiversity is deep and longstanding, as is our commitment to gender equality: through our Foundation, our CSR/Diversity policies, the actions of our Company Engagement department, and through all our businesses.
