Gender Equality Index 2022

Choose Paris Region is proud to announce that its gender equality index has scored 98 points out of 100, a +4 point increase between 2020 and 2021.
This index has been on the rise for the past two years, reflecting Choose Paris Region's strong commitment to gender equality.

This increase clearly proves the willingness to implement significant actions in favor of gender equality.

We are continuing our commitment to developing gender diversity and equal opportunities for all and at every stage of their careers.

The law for the freedom to choose one's professional future, which was adopted on August 1, 2018, requires companies to publish their gender equality index annually. This obligation aims to reduce any wage discrepancies that may exist between genders.

The index takes into consideration 5 criteria that are calculated over a total of 100 points:

Wage gap (38/40): this indicator shows the difference between the average wages of men and women.

Raise gap (35/35): This indicator compares the percentage of women and men who received a commensurate raise during the year.

Percentage of employees who received a raise upon returning from maternity leave (15/15)

Number of employees of the under-represented gender among the 10 highest earners (10/10): this indicator calculates the gender parity among the 10 highest earners.
