Schneider OUT (“SchOUT”) is an employee network that promotes the diversity and inclusion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) employees and their allies in Schneider Electric. Our goals are to attract, promote, and retain LGBT employees in Schneider Electric, with a focus on networking, professional development, community involvement and business outreach.
THE PURSUIT OF AN INCLUSIVE COMPANY
Schneider Electric is committed to supporting personal and professional development for all employees, including key resource groups designed for the professional development and advancement of LGBT individuals.
SchOUT chapters started in North America, this inclusive network is rapidly expanding across Latin America, Europe, and East Asia.
Schneider Electric’s leadership team is committed to promoting an inclusive workforce that encourages and fosters the growth of LGBT leaders within the company.
We expect strong, sustained performance from all managers and employees, based on clearly agreed goals and appropriate behaviours ('What' and 'How'), as defined in our 2020 vision of Leadership & Culture.
We believe access to energy is a basic human right. We want everyone on our planet to have access to safe, reliable, efficient, and sustainable energy. At Schneider Electric, we are committed to innovative solutions that address this energy parado: balancing our planet's carbon footprint and the undisputable right of everyone to quality energy.

All employees who are performing at the required level and who demonstrate alignment with Schneider values and culture are ‘talent’. We take risks in people. By giving all our employees the opportunity to realize their full potential, we will achieve Schneider’s potential to lead and win in the market. We have built One organization to give the best of Schneider to our customers but also to give career opportunities to our employees across entities. Our people learn and grow while the company grows. We are developers of talent with a focus on employee loyalty.
Diversity is a business imperative, where diverse teams are more creative, generating more innovation and better customer orientation by reflecting the diversity of our markets. Diversity also strengthens performance. We value differences, offer equal opportunities to everyone, and we offer careers around the globe, thanks to our multi-polar organization. We even back-up our commitment with action: by 2018, Schneider Electric commits to launching six different business resource groups for employees of diverse backgrounds nationwide.
