Diversity and Inclusion
Global reach requires global representation.
It's about creating a culture that truly reflects the millions we enable.
It's not about quota, it's about forging a future that is fair, rich and unified.
One story at a time.
As a company dedicated to connecting more people with more content across the globe, we believe our story should reflect those of the millions we serve. We are committed to increasing the number of employees from underrepresented groups and nurturing an inclusive company culture to create a fair, innovative and supporting working environment where people can flourish – empowering all SESers to write their stories and to contribute to the collective success of a truly global team. It's not about quota, it's about forging a future that is fair, rich and unified.
"As the CTO of SES, I believe that we need to push for more gender equality and recognize our female talent. My perspective has evolved over the years on the topic and has felt really liberating and it still shows that even though we have a long way to go, we cannot stop trying. So, we all need to try, to listen and to strive for change."
Ruy Pinto, Chief Technology Officer
“What is crucial to overcoming gender inequality in the workplace is to create an environment where women can unleash their full potential, an inclusive culture which allows everyone to grow and thrive. That is our mission.”
Evie Roos, Chief Human Resources Officer
“As leaders, we must actively work to cultivate and maintain this inclusive environment. Embracing ideas and innovation from as many talented individuals as possible will only be a catalyst for innovation and progress across the board. As for me - I know I can, and will, do more. As we continue introducing D&I initiatives, I am confident that we will foster a culture of acceptance and inclusivity for our employees, customers, partners, and prospective employees.”
JP Hemingway, CEO SES Networks
“Our background, identity, believes, experiences drive the way we think. Creativity and high-quality decisions come from the combination of different perspectives, and this can only be achieved by having diverse and inclusive teams. Our services are being used by a wide variety of people around the globe and reflecting this diversity inside our company is a must. Diversity and inclusion is ultimately an obvious enabler of value creation.”
Christophe De Hauwer, Chief Strategy & Development Officer
Diverse Work Force
We are committed to bringing together a team of diverse individuals with different life experiences, different backgrounds, and from different geographies and cultures. This approach is paramount to serving our customers today and helping us decipher the world’s communication needs of tomorrow.
At SES, we encourage everyone to share their passions wherever they see opportunity. Our people have led the way when it comes to have three active Equality and Inclusion Working Groups, a voluntary initiative that was launched in 2020. These employee-established and governed communities see individuals come together to tackle the biggest barriers to equal opportunity that exist within our walls. All employees, from all corners of the globe, are welcome and encouraged to join; to build an internal network that reflects their distinct yet collective story.
