International Women’s Day promotes gender equality.

International Women’s Rights Day, celebrated every March 8, dates back to the first feminist and socialist struggles of the early 20th century. Initiated in the United States in 1909 and officially adopted by the United Nations in 1977, it symbolizes the global struggle for gender equality and the empowerment of women.

The choice of March 8 echoes the demonstrations of Russian women in 1917, marking a turning point in the Russian Revolution and the fight for women’s rights. This day is a key moment to reflect on progress, demand equality and celebrate the courage of women everywhere.

OCTÉ encourages equality and diversity within the company. Competence is not a question of gender! With 43% female employees, the OCTÉ group is proud to be well above the sector benchmarks (20%).

OCTÉ welcomes talents who share and adhere to the values of solidarity, simplicity, efficiency and determination.

Caroline Sansone and Olivier Terryn have been running OCTÉ together for 10 years. Did you know that only 17% of businesses are run by women?

For tomorrow, OCTÉ, like the entire industry, must continue to mobilize to meet the challenge of equality and respect women’s rights.

If you are or know talented women, stay tuned for upcoming job openings.
