Beauty Gives Us Confidence In Who We Are And Who We Want To Be

We were among the first companies in 2018 to sign the United Nations LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business to combat all forms of discriminations.

As a worldwide Group, we reject all forms of discrimination. We act to create the most inclusive environment possible, in which everyone can express themselves, their uniqueness and their own vision of beauty, no matter where they are.

Since 2018, we have supported the LGBTI Standards of Conduct introduced by the United Nations to combat the discrimination faced by LGBTQIA+ communities. These standards are designed to promote global social change through five key steps:

  1. Respect the human rights of our LGBTQIA+ employees and customers and of LGBTQIA+ people generally.
  2. Eliminate workplace discrimination against our LGBTQIA+ employees.
  3. Provide workplace support to our LGBTQIA+ employees.
  4. Refrain from any type of discrimination against LGBTQIA+ suppliers, distributors, and customers, and ensure that our business partners do likewise.
  5. Commit to respecting the human rights of LGBTQIA+ people in the communities where we operate

Committed to human rights for everyone

In 2020, L’Oréal launched its Employee Human Rights Policy, which includes a commitment to reject discrimination on the basis of gender identity. L’Oréal pays special attention to individuals and groups, including women and people from LGBTQIA+ communities, whose human rights are most often exposed to violations.

Support all parents

Our new Share & Care program provides a wide common benefits frame to L’Oréal employees worldwide, including paid parental leave which every new parent (fathers and co-parents) can benefit from, with a minimum of 6 weeks, since 2021.

Promote LGBTQIA+ rights around the world

We are part of the Open for Business coalition, which brings together international companies that are committed to promoting the rights of LGBTQIA+ people all over the world. The coalition’s goal is to build momentum for LGBTQIA+ rights worldwide and to give groundcover to businesses operating in markets where these issues are sensitive. Open for Business also facilitates local networks of business leaders to advance LGBTQIA+ inclusion.
