With our presence in 36 countries, at Natixis, we comprise over 100 nationalities within our teams; this diversity is a major asset for our company, and it is at the heart of our culture.
Going beyond words, we value actions to create an inclusive and respectful environment where all individuals can feel good, be themselves and have a positive impact. This is why we have made a number of commitments in order to promote: gender diversity, the integration of individuals living with a handicap, a diverse mix of ethnic, social and cultural origins as well as the intersection of different generations.
Through this series of portraits, we will regularly present personalities and experiences where skill prevails over differences. You will get to know the thriving men and women who, beyond their differences and unique stories, have chosen not to leave their identity at the door, and have instead made it a strength.
We thank them all for sharing their talent, their commitment and their openness which helps us all move forward on the path to inclusion.
