Committed to gender balance

We continue to progress towards gender parity at all levels of the organization.

AXA applies gender equality in its recruitment processes and AXA’s leaders act as advocates for reaching gender balance across the organization.

At the end of 2023, women made up over 55% of AXA’s sales and non-sales workforce and held 35% (+1pt. compared to 2022) of all Executive sales and non-sales positions. Since 2009, AXA has been tracking representation of women among its Top Senior Executives’ population. AXA is also committed to reaching gender parity among its Top Senior Executives (The Global Leadership Network - GLN). The GLN was established in early 2019, and at the end of 2019, women represented 32% of this population. By the end of 2023, it had reached 40% (up 1 point from 2022). Women now make up 51% of GLN CEO roles, up from 38% in 2022, 37% in 2021 and 30% in 2020. The Management Committee assists the Chief Executive Officer in the operational management of the Group. The Partners group is composed of members of the Management Committee and approximately 30 other Top Senior Executives from across the Group. Its principal role is to assist the Chief Executive Officer and the Management Committee in defining and implementing key strategic initiatives. The Global Leadership Network is made up of CEOs and Executive Committees of AXA’s largest markets, growth engines and major transversal entities, as well as senior leaders from the corporate functions, markets and some country CEOs. GLN members are central to the delivery of AXA’s transformation over the coming years.

Diversity in teams is a shared goal for AXA’s GLN. All Management Committee members and Chief Executive Officers of entities have diversity objectives with a clear focus on improving gender diversity within their respective organizations.
