ALTEN commits to promoting
gender equality in scientific fields


ALTEN’s women and men are the driving force behind our organisation.

It is essential that we develop, accompany, and promote our internal talents, to enable us to respond to our customers’ needs. ALTEN’s drive for excellence is based on its strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, and particularly on its conviction that women have much to offer in the technical and scientific fields. Nevertheless, there are still too few young women who lean towards scientific and engineering careers.

« The position of women in the industry is a real societal issue. At ALTEN, we are working to raise awareness and persuade women to join technical and scientific fields.»

Simon Azoulay, Chair & CEO of ALTEN Group
