LVMH and 30 of its Maisons signed the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles. These are a set of seven principles that the signatories have committed to and include: fighting against gender discrimination; ensuring health and safety at work for men and women; the promotion of education; the training and professional development of women; supporting women's presence in the "world" of business; mobilising networks and, finally, the publication of progress.

The Maisons signing the Principles are: Krug, Moët & Chandon, Hennessy, Veuve Clicquot, Glenmorangie, Estates & Wines, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Emilio Pucci, Marc Jacobs, Berluti, Christian Dior, Loewe, Givenchy, Acqua di Parma, Kenzo, Thomas Pink, Parfums Christian Dior, Guerlain, Parfums Loewe, Make Up For Ever, TAG Heuer, Fred, Chaumet, Dior Montres, Bulgari, Sephora, Le Bon Marché, DFS, Les Echos and the Jardin d’Acclimatation.

Professional diversity is an integral part of LVMH’s culture. “The complementariness and richness born of diversity are a competitive factor for the Group and its Maisons,” said Chantal Gaemperle, Executive Vice President, Human Resources and Synergies.

LVMH has been working for several years to promote the professional development of women in all functions and at all levels of the organization. 74% of the total workforce, 61% of managers and 36% of the members of the Executive Committees of the Maisons are women.

The signing took place during the course of a day devoted to the development of talent, which gathered 150 leaders and high flyers.
