Preventing "Unconscious Bias and Stereotypes"

Started in 2018, this dedicated training program aims to increase our teams’ awareness of the impact of biases and stereotypes on decision making processes and the value of workplace diversity. During these workshops, employees explore the nuances between prejudices, stereotypes, and discrimination, by analysing some of the most common unconscious biases, before creating specific action plans to work against the mechanisms of workplace discrimination, instead promoting equal opportunities.

Promoting women development through “EllesVMH” program

Launched in 2007 by LVMH, EllesVMH aims to support women’s professional development in all positions or levels of experience through initiatives such as coaching, mentoring, training, or highlighting women’s career paths. In 2018, EllesVMH launched SHERO, an internal digital platform, and community to empower women and men working in the LVMH group through articles, videos, podcasts, and more.

"Sexist Behaviours and Workplace Sexual Harassment" training

Sexism groups all discriminatory beliefs and behaviours, based on the idea that one sex and by extension one gender, most often female, is inferior to another. Sexism is the main obstacle to equality between women and men, especially in the workplace. We have taken action by training local team members at each of our sites in France to prevent and combat sexism and its manifestations.

Working with people with disabilities through partnerships with ESATs and EAs

ESATs (Etablissements et Services d’Aide par le Travail) are health and social structures that help people with disabilities to carry out a professional activity in adapted working conditions and with social and medical support. EAs (Entreprises Adaptées) are companies that employ up to 80% of workers with disabilities in a suitable and adapted environment. In France, Louis Vuitton has developed lasting partnerships with 44 ESATs and EAs, for a total turnover of more than 5 million euros in 2019, across various activities, such as logistics or industrial processes.

Japan

Supporting senior employment

For Louis Vuitton, the retention of senior employees, true pillars of transmission, is a key issue that is addressed specifically by geographic region. Since 2016, in Japan, we have offered volunteering senior employees the chance to extend their professional experience beyond the legal retirement age. This initiative enhances the skills of our teams while building bridges between generations.

North Asia
