DEAUVILLE, France, Oct. 15, 2013 /CNW/ -
Female recruitment has particularly accelerated in emerging economies,
helping to increase gender parity in key countries such as Russia and
Renault remains an industry benchmark for women at the senior executive
level and has become a benchmark for women at the highest corporate
level in France

The Renault-Nissan Alliance continues to make progress in closing the
gender gap, and in the past year the organization has particularly
accelerated recruitment and advancement of women in key growth markets.
Russia and Brazil are among Renault-Nissan's most successful regions for
female recruitment and advancement into management positions. In
Russia, Renault's third-largest market, women account for 19% of the
workforce and 25% of managers. In 2013, 40% of all new Renault recruits in Russia were women, up from
35% in the previous year.
At Nissan, women account for 15% of the workforce in Russia and 27.7% of
managers, one of the highest ratios within the company.
Brazil is another key growth market, where rapid hiring has helped
increase the ranks of women managers at Nissan. Nissan has almost
tripled the number of female managers in Brazil in just one year. Women
now represent nearly 20% of all Nissan Brazil managers. Thanks in part
to Brazil's success, the number of women managers has surged 70% in the
last five years throughout Nissan's operations in the Americas.
"Because of the faster pace of growth and demand for talent, emerging
markets represent a historic opportunity to close the global gender
gap," said Renault-Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn. "But make no
mistake: Closing the gender gap is our objective worldwide, including in our home markets."
Globally, Renault remains a leader in the industry in terms of women at
the senior executive management level. Two out of its ten-member
executive committee are women. Renault now has similar representation
of women at all levels of the company. Women comprise 17.4% of
Renault's global headcount, 17% of managerial positions and 16% of
Renault's key 150 executive positions globally.
