At Havas we are #AllIn
At Havas, our people come first. We are committed to building a more diverse, inclusive, and just Havas — to provide a more meaningful work experience for all.
Launched in 2018, Havas’s global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) program, All In, focuses on a wide range of DE&I initiatives including ethnic and cultural representation, gender equality, LGBTQ+ inclusion, disability, wellness, age, and other topics. All In is an innovative approach to DE&I in that it’s not the typical top-down approach, but rather is focused on engaging all levels of the organization. We take a “local” approach to setting DE&I strategy as we respect that areas of focus vary greatly by country, culture, and agency. Havas makes it a priority to create inclusive environments where people can truly be themselves and feel supported to achieve their best.
In the last year, All In launched 100 actions in 39 agencies and villages. This year, there are over 150 actions across 42 agencies and villages. We are making progress in celebrating the richness of our talent and are seeing some great impact around the world.
At Havas we #CommitToChange
The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and Ahmaud Arbery sparked national outrage in the US—accumulating in action to ensure continued progress for racial justice with emphasis on the Black community. As a leader in the industry, Havas is in a unique position to impact the industry, influence society and continue to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment for our employees.
We #CommitToChange in order to build a more diverse, inclusive and just Havas — to provide a more meaningful work experience for all.
Our plan was developed through a 360-degree assessment of our North America business, best practices from category leaders, feedback from our employees and guidance from advocacy groups, such as 600 & Rising, Allyship & Action and Curiosity Lab, as well as leading DEI leaders and consultants. It encompasses initiatives, actions and programs that will be enacted across Havas NA, with some having potential to scale globally.
Our goal is to drive impact and change in a cohesive approach across our North America agencies, while also supporting the activism that has taken place locally.
We want to thank all our employees and partners who have bravely shared their passion, voices, stories, thoughts and ideas. You are the heart of our business.
