DISABILITIES: IMAGINATION PLAYING A CENTRAL ROLE AT HACHETTE LIVRE

Companies need to show social responsibility, because society expects it and because it is an ethical imperative.

At Hachette Livre, we are already taking pro-active steps to limit the environmental impact of our activities and to promote gender equality.

I want us now to reach a new milestone regarding the integration of disabled people into the workforce. That objective is being pursued through the creation of Hachette Livre’s Disability Initiative which, for example, organised a “reading in the dark” workshop in 2015.

Diversity is one of Hachette Livre’s key characteristics and one of its strengths. So integrating people with differences within our teams comes naturally to us.

Today, we need to join forces, organise ourselves and encourage those efforts so that we are even more able to welcome talented people together with their differences. Sometimes all that’s needed to achieve that in our day-to-day activities is a little imagination: another of Hachette Livre’s main resources.

It’s up to all of us to make it happen.
