CELESTE joins the endorser of the Diversity Charter

CELESTE is now one of the 4,500 endorsers of the Diversity Charter. This approach is in line with the operator’s CSR commitment, which is also a member of the United Nations Global Compact.

The Diversity Charter is a commitment text signed by companies wishing, through a proactive approach, to act in favor of diversity and thus go beyond the legal framework of the fight against discrimination.

« By signing the Diversity Charter, CELESTE is proud to affirm its commitment to act fairly in the fight against discrimination and its contribution to 3 Sustainable Development Goals. Also convinced that diversity is a guarantee of performance, CELESTE is committed to ensure the same working conditions and professional development to all its employees from the moment they are recruited and throughout their career », explains Nicolas Aubé, CELESTE’s founding president.

CELESTE’s actions to encourage diversity

In 2021, CELESTE joined the Elles bougent association in order to promote the careers of female engineers and technicians. This approach supports the operator’s conviction that female talent is necessary for its development, and that female employees can help promote digital and telecommunications professions among young women.

Since 2022, CELESTE has been supported by Agefiph and the firm JLO in the deployment of a disability policy to go further in the recruitment and integration of disabled workers and in raising awareness among its employees.
