At Vallourec, diversity is of paramount importance. Nearly 1,000 Group employees took part in the two webcast sessions organized for International Women's Day in early March, focusing on the theme of inclusion and diversity. Their commitment testifies to the importance the company attaches to these values.

Celebrating Diversity


#InspiringInclusion_CelebratingDiversity: was the theme of the photo contest organized by Vallourec to celebrate International Women’s Day 2024. Employees around the world participated enthusiastically, sharing over 250 photos as well as numerous quotes. Thank you to all our employees for their commitment!


These sessions, part of the “We are Vallourec” program dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion, provided an opportunity to take stock of the remarkable progress made within the company, both at corporate level and in the various regions. They also provided an opportunity to discuss the Group’s vision for 2024 and to present the best practices observed in its three main regions. In addition, female role models within the organization shared their experiences and valuable advice in virtual roundtables.
