Air Liquide, patron of the musée du quai Branly – Paris, France

January 14, 2011

The Air Liquide Group has chosen to join forces with the musée du quai Branly and support the “WOMEN IN ORIENT, seen by Christian Lacroix” exhibition.

True hymn to oriental women, the exhibition reveals another aspect of femininity, from the North of Syria to the Sinaï peninsula, introducing an exceptional collection of 150 traditional costumes and accessories from the Near East.

The theme of this exhibition is doubly representative of the importance the Group places on the role of women within the Company and of its growing presence in the Middle East. Present in 80 countries, Air Liquide is established in most of the Middle Eastern countries, where it accounts for over 600 employees.

For Air Liquide, diversity is a strategic axis in the Company’s Human Resources Policy, convinced it is a source of dynamism, creativity and performance. The Group has been putting into place for several years now actions to strengthen the equality and balance of responsibilities between men and women in the Group, as well as the position of women within its organization.
