Women's Rights Day 2022
GLS France, a committed player in the fight against stereotypes about the place of women in the transport and logistics sector
The share of women in industry, construction and logistics is still very low and is generally associated with many clichés. According to INSEE, of the 87 occupational groups listed, only 18 are considered to be mixed, that is with a ratio of 60% to 40% between the two sexes. The situation is particularly glaring in the industrial sector, where women are still in the minority.
Nevertheless, some players stand out and implement HR policies based on total equality. This is the case at GLS France, a parcel delivery company, which promotes female role models within its corporate culture.
