Diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity are key issues at APRR and its Rhône-Alpes subsidiary AREA.
After the Diversity label obtained in 2016 and confirmed in 2020, APRR goes further with the signing, on June 22, 2022, of the charter of the Other Circle for the inclusion in the professional activity of LGBT+ people.



Guillaume Hérent, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of APRR & AREA, and Pascal Billard, Director of Human Resources, signed the Charter of Commitment to the Inclusion of LGBT+ People on June 22 in Dijon, in the presence of Denis Triay and Catherine Tripon, respectively president and spokesperson of the association l'Autre Cercle, a French benchmark for the inclusion of LGBT+* people in the workplace.

By signing the Other Circle charter, APRR and AREA undertake to create an inclusive environment for everyone within the work collective, to ensure equal treatment and rights, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity of employees, to support victims of discriminatory remarks or acts and to measure progress and progress. It is also about sharing best practices to improve the general professional environment.
Make things happen
This signature was also a real opportunity to bring together several fully committed actors around a round table on the inclusion of LGBT+ people. The city of Dijon, the Apicil group, France 3 Bourgogne Franche-Comté and the University of Burgundy were thus invited. The speakers presented, through sincere testimonies rich in lessons, the concrete actions undertaken in each of their areas, which make it possible to make things happen as far this subject is conerned.
