Chloé continues to be an employer that promotes equal opportunities. We want to advance gender equality and inclusion throughout the workplace, while supporting and inspiring individuals. We aim to foster a workplace where people of every gender, of every ethnicity, socio-economic background, sexual orientation, age or disability – visible or invisible – feel welcomed and valued.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
From the creation of Chloé in 1952, Gaby Aghion worked with women and men to develop their experience and skills in the workplace. Since then, we have continued this approach by recruiting talent from all backgrounds, encouraging employment that is inclusive and respectful of diversity. Internally, our Human Resources teams created a Diversity & Inclusion chart, that is distributed to all collaborators worldwide. This responsibility extends to all models working with the House whereby we have defined and put in place clear standards to ensure that they feel protected and valued at Chloé. As one example, Chloé will protect the personal identity of models, avoiding any misrepresentation of their culture, origins or beliefs. This includes skin lightening, hair straightening and removal of braids.
The legacy of our founder, Gaby Aghion, and her forward vision of femininity, continues to inspire our long-term commitment to support women’s advancement and rebalance gender-based inequalities. We are proud that women currently make up 80% of our team at our headquarters in Paris, and 83% of Chloé worldwide. 70% of top management positions worldwide are held by women. At Chloé, every collaborator – of every gender – is an ambassador of our values and commitment towards gender equality and we officialised our commitment by signing the Women Empowerment Principles of the United Nations in January 2021.
TRAINING & PERFORMANCE
We see people as change agents of our transition to a purpose-driven business model. For this reason, we have integrated measurable indicators related to sustainability in performance plans for all collaborators, from April 2021. To support everyone through this transformation, we organise training for all collaborators worldwide on gender equality, climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals. We also have the objective to train 100% of our product teams on sustainable materials and circularity by the end of 2021. At the leadership level, we have created a training plan on sustainability for the members of our executive committee. What’s more, for all executive committee members, including our CEO, we have integrated sustainability indicators into their formal objectives.
As part of our 2025 objective to dedicate 1% of our time to initiatives supporting gender equality, we started a volunteering programme for our collaborators in May 2021. We will arrive at our initial commitment which entails 2000 hours of volunteering for NGOs related to environment, gender equality & education by March 2022.
