MoovOne provides coaching to female talent at Nexans to promote diversity and equality within the Group.
Nexans is the global leader in advanced cabling and connectivity solutions. The Nexans Group is committed to facilitating energy transition and supporting the exponential growth of data by empowering its customers in four main business areas: Building & Territories, High Voltage & Projects, Telecom & Data, and Industry & Solutions. Nexans employs more than 26,000 people with industrial footprint in 34 countries and commercial activities worldwide. In 2017, the Group generated 6.4 billion euros in sales.
Like many other industrial groups, representativity and gender parity is a challenge for Nexans. Indeed, only about 15% of the top 100 leaders at Nexans are women. To aim for more representativity, the organization launched the Women in Nexans (WiN) initiative. It aims at creating a professional community of women and at raising awareness about the importance of gender diversity from a business performance perspective. Another mission is to launch HR initiatives both for building a pipeline of future women managers and improving well-being at work on Group level.
Through the WiN initiative, Nexans created a network for women to give them a place to share and tools to help them anticipate the next step in their careers. This was composed of three different pillars:
MoovOne’s professional online coaching solution comes into the second pillar. The project started as a pilot to test the platform and get some feedback from senior business leaders. It was then extended to talents and high potentials. The digital approach of the solution provided a lot of flexibility and allowed participants to connect with their coach wherever and whenever they wanted. Thanks to MoovOne’s global reach and international community of coaches, Nexans was able to support participants in their native languages. In some cases, the participant’s managers also received some coaching sessions. This gave them an outlet to talk openly and to support their team member in their coaching journey.

I am delighted we were able to carry it out for some talented “Women in Nexans”. Not only did it give us the opportunity to work digitally but it allowed us to cover the global scope of our Group with participants from all over the world.”
