Around 30% of LGBTI employees say they have seen instances of homophobic discrimination in the workplace and 73% avoid discussing their private life at work. BNP Paribas Group has adopted the UN standards against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity—in line with its Diversity and Inclusion policy and with the aim of integrating all people within its company.
In September 2017, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (HCHR) published its standards of conduct for tackling discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in the workplace. Businesses adhering to these standards commit to following several rules:
BNP Paribas adheres fully to the UN standards by adopting its main principles. To elaborate on these norms, the Group notably worked with Autre Cercle, an LGBTI association and UN partner working to create a more inclusive and respectful world for all people from every background.
For several years, the Group has pursued its commitment to combatting homophobia and transphobia with the aim of guaranteeing an inclusive work environment for all employees.
