Diversity & Inclusion
Committed to create a diverse and inclusive workplace
Diversity makes it better, Inclusion makes it real
That is our motto and the driving force to join the change and foster an inclusive culture. Our ambition is to cultivate an open and responsive environment for all that encourages collaboration and interaction. We demonstrate our commitment by actively contributing to the Group’s Diversity and Inclusion strategy and goals, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
As part of our local Corporate and Social Responsibility – Diversity & Inclusion strategy, BNP Paribas Portugal is committed to:
- Promote a fair and unbiased recruitment process and offer professional development opportunities to all employees;
- Celebrate diversity and advocate for inclusion, both externally and internally, encouraging employees participation, creating space for different voices to be heard.
To foster the effort of BNP Paribas Portugal, multiple initiatives and events take place throughout the year where our people can find out more on the importance of diversity inclusion at the workplace and on society.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy
We are building a positive and open environment for all, where each one of us plays a role in. We want to celebrate diversity and inclusion at all times and promote a fair and unbiased recruitment process. Our actions are developed across six major dimensions. But what do they actually mean for our Company? Click on the video below to know more.
Join the change to foster an inclusive culture
Throughout the professional development, we assure that every employee feels welcome, safe and respected, and guaranty equal opportunities for all. In order to take these goals into place BNP Paribas promotes the creation and encouragement of employees’ networks. These contribute to a fairer and more inclusive world.
Our employee networks
All Abroad Portugal seeks to make all employees at BNP Paribas PT feel at ease in a diverse and multicultural workplace, by creating a safe space for fellow internationals and knowledgeable locals to network, socialize, make friends, exchange both professional and personal tips, and promote a cosmopolitan workplace.
PRIDE Portugal aims to assist in creating a supportive working environment, where the LGBT staff feels safe, respected and valued by all, through visibility, education, advocacy and support of the LGBT community. We envision a work place free of prejudice and hate which promotes authenticity without fear.
TOGETHER by MixCity is an employee led network, open to all staff regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or employment status, with a focus on gender parity/equality that aims to help maximize the potential of women working at BNP Paribas.
BOLD aims to inspire BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) to aspire to and pursue personal and professional progress in spite of any boundaries and bring awareness to all staff on how they can leverage on their platforms and positions of privilege to erase those obstacles, in order to make BNP Paribas reflect the diversity from the inside (with ourselves) to the goals and values of the bank outside.
Cyber threats pervade all our lives but women are still under represented and lack visibility in the field. Our mission is to champion women working in Cyber and Tech fields at BNP Paribas and explore new ways to address other challenges that impact our lives, professionally and personally.
