Overview of Publicis Groupe’s Talent Engagement & Inclusion Practice
Publicis Groupe’s Talent Engagement & Inclusion (TE&I) Practice is dedicated to making Publicis Groupe ever stronger and more competitive in the marketplace by creating, promoting and nurturing an engaging and inclusive work environment for all.
Publicis Groupe’s motto “Viva la Difference!” inspired the TE&I team’s journey to develop a diversity, equity and inclusion strategy which celebrates the differences in identity, background, culture and experience of all our talent, while providing tools, points of access and resources that positively supports their experiences in the workplace.

This is accomplished though enabling access to a wide variety of learning, networking, and career development opportunities and experiences, allowing us to recruit and retain the best talent.
