Our Teams Members

Gender Equity

At bioMérieux, we’re committed to improving gender equity at all levels and functions of the company. We are convinced that gender equity benefits everyone and is about creating a fair and inclusive society where everyone can thrive.

  • In France in 2023, bioMérieux obtained a score of 93 out of 100 in the gender equality index.

We aim to increase the representation of women in the highest levels of responsibility.

  • We have set ourselves the objective of having more than 40% of women in the Company’s management team* by 2025.

International Profiles

At bioMérieux, we believe that we have a shared ownership and need to work collectively to make our teams more inclusive. As we continue to grow and evolve, breaking down the barriers that bias creates takes our collective commitment. 

  • We have put in place organizational goals to increase underrepresented groups in our leadership, to have more inclusion awareness opportunities in the organization and to have more than 35% of international profiles in the Company’s management team* by 2025.

Supporting differently abled people

At bioMérieux, promoting inclusion of differently abled people has been a longstanding commitment.

In 2022, we renewed our commitment by signing a collective four-year agreement. In 2023, the percentage of team members with disabilities stood at 6.78%, exceeding the legal minimum.

We set up a couple of actions to help our differently abled team members, among which:

  • a commitment to recruitment, all contract types combined;
  • increased awareness and training of our team members involved in welcoming people with disabilities in their teams.

The Company implements policies and programs for the employment of people with disabilities in other countries, based on local regulations.

In the United States, a diversity task force sponsored a virtual safe space to support its employees with disabilities.
