Their mission is to make young women aware of science-based careers and the association Girls on the Move, has been a Bouygues Construction and Welink partner for a year. By becoming Honorary Chairman for 2018, Philippe Bonnave, Bouygues Construction CEO, rounds off a 2017 full of rallying action in support of talent diversity within business and education. Today, the Group has more than 50 female mentors that are participating in various events to share their experiences with the younger people in their profession: Innovatech Challenge, Girls on the Move, Women in Engineering Professions, etc.

I’d like to thank all the Bouygues Construction mentors for their involvement. Gender diversity - and more broadly, diversity of backgrounds - is an essential part of performance for our companies and out sector. We therefore have a key role in moving things forward at every level”, highlighted Philippe Bonnave, Chairman & CEO of Bouygues Construction.
The aim for 2018 is clear: step up this measure so that it covers all the Group’s professions and geographical areas. In fact, a major inter-company Girls on the Move day devoted to construction and the Smart City - a first for the sector - is being prepared. Construction and company site visits will be organised for this new event, dubbed “Women are building the city of tomorrow”, which will take place on 5 April 2018 and be followed by a wide array of female participants in six cities in France.
 
What is the current situation for gender diversity at Bouygues Construction?
There are currently twice as many women managers in the Group as in 2012. This is an indication of change and real proof of the company’s commitment to this strategic topic. There is still a lot of work to do as the percentage of women at Bouygues Construction is still low, at just 20% (up three percentage points in five years), as is the appeal of our profession to young female students.
And it was in this context that Philippe Bonnave reminded us of the importance of rallying women mentors: our future recruitment is at stake. The partnership with Girls on the Move means we can work on the long term so that, in a few years, Bouygues Construction might recruit more women from technical and engineering backgrounds.
