Our CSR commitments
The DRAC Île-de-France, in a spirit of social and environmental responsibility, is, on the one hand, committed to promoting occupational equality between women and men and to combating all forms of discrimination, notably through the dual AFNOR "equality-diversity" label renewed in 2022 for four years, and also deploys a proactive strategy in terms of ecological transition through its strategy "Territories of sustainable culture".
Since 2017, the DRAC has been committed to equality and diversity
Holder of the dual ALLIANCE Diversity and Equality label, issued by AFNOR Certification, DRAC Île-de-France has established an action plan covering the period 2017-2021 and renewed for the period 2021-2025. This action plan takes into account the issues of occupational equality between women and men and proposes to combat gender stereotypes and sexual and gender-based violence and all other forms of discrimination, whether they concern disability, sexuality or origin.
These commitments concern both DRAC officers, who will be trained and made aware of these issues, recruitment policies within our administration, but also the policies that we implement in the Ile-de-France region as a decentralized department of the Ministry of Culture, the objective being to promote women’s access to positions of responsibility, to aim for a better representativeness of these -In particular, the Commission has adopted a proposal for a Council Directive on the approximation of the laws of the Member States of the European Union.
This action plan is part of the overall approach taken by the Ministry of Culture, and in particular within the framework of the 2019-2022 Equality Roadmap of the Minister of Culture.
Culture is a sector where gender inequalities remain particularly pronounced, as shown by the national figures from the High Council on Equality between women and men (source: Inequalities between women and men in culture, HCE Report, January 2018), supplemented each year by the LIFO statistical data established under theMonitoring gender equality in culture and communication :
- 60% of art school students are women;
- 40% of active artists are women;
- 20% of artists supported by public funds are women;
- 20% of programmed artists are women;
- 20% of cultural leaders are women;
- 10% of the artists rewarded are women;
- Average salary is 18% lower (equal position and equal skills).
Sustainable Growing Territories: DRAC’s Green Transition Strategy
The climate, ecological and energy crises we are going through lead the Ministry of Culture to adapt public policies carried out in the territory: regulatory developments, questioning of existing processes and funding, change in practices across businesses. A desirable choice based on a virtuous vision, this adaptation is also an obligation, accentuated by an urgency, to ensure the sustainability of all cultural policies.
In the territories, faced with the challenges of transition, cultural policies are evolving to continue to provide major resources to maintain social cohesion and promote sustainable development. For the DRAC Île-de-France, it is a matter of giving substance to «Territories of sustainable culture», where public cultural policies can be deployed both ambitious and adapted to the new context. In this context, the DRAC Île-de-France has several roles to play: working with all government departments on emerging common issues, implementing new recommendations and regulatory adaptations, to help disseminate the best practices tested and identified, to support all cultural actors so that they can continue their activities in spite of the difficulties related to the context and to come in support of the initiatives supported by the local authorities. Concretely, the support and financing of the ecological transition in cultural policies in the Ile-de-France region is now a major challenge for the DRAC, whether it be investments, particularly building, activation of the levers present in the government’s transition plans (green fund, recovery plans, future investment plans, France 2030), or operational expenses (energy expenditure, consumption of resources in a circular economy, mobility of agents, artists, works or even audiences).
The DRAC Île-de-France “Territoires de culture durable” strategy is constructed as an adaptation adapted to the specific characteristics of the regional territory of the priorities defined by cultural, ecological and energy policies and is structured according to 5 axes:
- Axis 1 - Making DRAC a structure in transition
- Axis 2 - Making built heritage and architecture levers of the ecological transition in the sustainable development of territories in Île-de-France
- Axis 3 - Ensuring, in a context of energy efficiency, the sustainable functioning of museums and creative places in Île-de-France
- Axis 4 - Support the transition of practices in all cultural sectors by relying on a network of actors engaged in Île-de-France
- Axis 5 - Experimenting with «Territoires de culture durable» demonstrators in Île-de-France
