Adopting a responsible approach and making training and education more accessible to everyone
A pledge to comply with the 10 principles of the Global Compact
The Global Compact offers its members a framework for voluntary commitment to ten principles concerning human rights, labour law, the environment and fighting corruption.
The UN Global Compact calls on companies to meet or exceed the vision of the 2030 Agenda. It thus promotes the goals of sustainable development.
As a signatory, Cegos is part of this movement and is committed to making progress.
Committed to education and inclusion worldwide
For many years, Cegos has provided financial support to initiatives that make education and training more accessible to everyone, everywhere in the world.
As a sponsor of UNICEF since 2016, we are continuing our commitment to education by backing the “GIRL POWER” programme in Côte d'Ivoire.
The programme is intended for 300 girls aged 16 to 24 who have dropped out of school, are unemployed or have an insecure job, in San Pedro and Abidjan. It bridges the gap between school drop-out and professional training centres. The girls are thus given the opportunity to enter the world of work, to take an active part in community life and to gain independence.
Cegos has been supporting the Paris-Tegu association since 2020.
The Franco-Honduran NGO works for the protection and social and professional integration of disadvantaged young people in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The financial support of Cegos in 2021 has enabled it to participate in the digital transformation of the Cultural Centre. A psychological support programme was also set up at the Centre.
For several years now, Cegos has been providing free training to NGOs and their professionals.
The aim is to equip them with the managerial, organisational, and collaborative skills needed to carry out their work on the ground, alongside the most disadvantaged.
Cegos supports the HUMENTUM association and provides access to its e-learning modules to dozens of major international NGOs.
These include Oxfam, Save the Children, Care, WWF, World Vision, Catholic Relief Services, etc.
More than 150,000 aid workers and professionals in the voluntary sector also have access to Cegos e-learning modules. This is done through two programmes run by the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation, DisasterReady.org and NonProfitready.org.
Promoting inclusion: Cegos is the official sponsor of wheelchair tennis champion Pauline Déroulède in her bid for a medal
Pauline Déroulède's story began with a terrible accident one evening in October 2018.
While safely parked on her scooter, she was mowed down by a 92-year-old driver in the middle of Paris. At 28 years old, her left leg had to be amputated. A dozen general anaesthetics and long months of rehabilitation ensued…
But as she says herself with great selflessness: “I am a woman and I am still standing”. Rather than brood over her anger, Pauline, an accomplished sportswoman, quickly set her sights on becoming the Olympic wheelchair tennis champion in Paris in 2024.
Cegos chose to support Pauline, who perfectly embodies the values of the Cegos Group: commitment, agility and sharing. Pauline is a model of resilience, a young woman who is combative, positive, open, and committed. Through her career, her sincerity, and her struggles, she is a role model for young people and for all of us.
