Episode 3: Philippe D’Ornano, CEO Sisley, Talks Gender Equality

Mar 24, 2020 | Uncategorized

For our third episode we interviewed Philippe D’Ornano CEO of Sisley, one of the leading cosmetics companies in the world. Philippe tells us about how it has been to work as a man in a female dominated industry and leading a company where the workforce across all levels is mostly female. Philippe’s values have largely been inspired by the work of his mother and father who founded the company, upon which he continues to innovate. Philippe guides us through the importance of looking at motivation to hire humans based on their worth and the importance of living in a society where everyone can express their full potential. He advocates for why government-supported maternity leave is a good idea.

Philippe also promotes his commitment to gender equality through the Sisley Foundation, which engages in countless projects to bring about inclusion of marginalized women who have been through homelessness and prostitution in France and around the world.  He also supports the importance of having female role models in fields in which they still are too few, which is why he created the Women in Cinema at the Arcs Film Festival for independent film. Finally he tells us about raising three girls with plenty of curiosity and empathy and their latest joint poetry project, “Bêtes de Compagnie”.
