French national lottery operator Française des Jeux (FDJ) has entered into a partnership with LGBT+ group l’Autre Cercle as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Signing the organisation’s LGBT+ Commitment Charter, FDJ said this will support its ongoing efforts for the inclusion of LGBT+ people in the workplace.
FDJ said it would work with l’Autre Cercle to continue and strengthen its policy on diversity and equal opportunities.
This strategy includes professional equality, disability, intergeneration, social diversity and origins, affective orientation and gender identity.
“We are strongly committed to equal opportunities within the group,” FDJ chairman and CEO, Stéphane Pallez, said. “I am convinced of the need for collective commitment and awareness at all levels of the company.
“Signing the LGBT+ Commitment Charter, supported by l’Autre Cercle, illustrates our desire to go even further in the group’s commitment to the inclusion of all diversities.”
Catherine Tripon, co-head of the employers’ division at l’Autre Cercle, added: “L’Autre Cercle is betting, with the formal framework of signing the LGBT+ Commitment Charter, to develop the company from signatory organisations including FDJ.
“The world of work must be a safe environment. It is essential that employees feel good there, in order to avoid the risk of unequal treatment.”
