Un WomenUN Women has selected Schneider Electric to join the HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 pilot group. This selection comes following the 2015 Leadership Award won by Schneider Electric for its action in favour of gender equality, as part of the Women's Empowerment Principles (WEP) from UN Women and the Global Compact.

HeForShe is a solidarity movement by UN Women in favor of gender equality. HeForShe’s mission is to encourage men to support change in favor of diversity and women's rights. The overall objective of HeForShe is to mobilize "a billion men by September 2015" to help communities around the world to design sustainable change programs in favor of gender equality.

HeForShe was launched on September 20, 2014, with an initial campaign targeting individuals. UN Women accelerates the movement with a new initiative: IMPACT 10x10x10. This project aims to involve 10 governments, 10 companies and 10 universities throughout the world in the movement, so as to create an initial pilot group. Government officials, civil society organizations, along with universities and schools make real commitments to defend, measure and promote gender equality. IMPACT 10x10x10 also provides a basis to encourage new public and private organizations to become part of the HeForShe project.

The companies already members of the IMPACT 10x10x10 pilot group are: Accor Hotels, the Koç Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Tupperware Brands, and Unilever. Schneider Electric is now a part of this group.

"Our ambition is to become one of the most diverse company. At Schneider Electric, we value differences and offer equal opportunities to everyone, everywhere. Identifying, developing and attracting female talents is a business imperative and is high in our agenda for the coming years. We strongly believe we will make significant progress only if our male employees commit to becoming spokespersons of this transformation by advocating gender equality. Joining and promoting the HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 program is a great opportunity to accelerate our program and contribute to society”said Olivier Blum, Chief Human Resources Officer.

As a member of the HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10, Schneider Electric’s commitments by the end of 2017 are:

Increase the representation of women across the pipeline — 40% at entry of new managers and technicians (vs. 29% currently), and 35% increase in representation in key positions;
Implement a salary equity process worldwide, covering 85% of the Group’s workforce;
Involve Group leaders worldwide and create a governance body dedicated to this program.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates. But in terms of educating consumers does the residential electrician have a role? And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
