Estelle’s vision is to build a more diverse company with a diverse management team and, as part of this, 30% of Veolia UK & Ireland’s ExCo is now female. To ensure this continues, she has created a diverse executive pipeline with support from Veolia’s Women in Leadership initiative and a series of executive training programmes. She is also one of two sponsors of Veolia Group’s Gender Diversity Network ‘WEDO’, to influence gender balance throughout the 163,000 employees worldwide. Internally, Estelle has also held a Coaching Circle to give guidance in addition to a live Q&A to answer business questions from female leaders across the entire Veolia network. Externally, she is involved in several networks promoting gender balance in the workplace, including being the chair of the French Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Business Club. She also often meets groups of young women at the start of their careers and has spoken to female engineers at various events such as those held at HEC Paris – the European business school that holds events in London. On International Women’s Day, Estelle has also taken part in several annual events, including those led by Accenture to inspire young female leaders.
