Second Diversity Conference 24/10/2014 Clichy, France

Ethnicity, Culture (and Social Class): "Origins" and Business
Yes, you can! Dealing with ethnicity at the workplace
24th October 2014
L'Oréal Headquarters, Clichy, France

An increasing number of businesses are aware that some elements of their diversity management policies are missing: a specific focus on the questions of ethnicity, cultures and social origins.

  • Don't you think our "cultural mindset" limits our capacity to address ethnicity and cultures at the workplace?
  • Are you tired of the widespread resistance and discomfort when dealing with these issues in Europe?
  • Are you looking for concrete actions that work and can make a difference?

Then this conference is for you!

Why join this conference

This second Diversity Conference will support businesses to take deal constructively with the questions of ethnicity, cultures and social origins at the workplace. It will take the matter one step forward (from last year's conference) and explore what businesses already achieve and could do further (taking inspiration from other contexts).

At the end of the day, different experts will present their perspectives and analyse what can and what cannot be done from their standpoints (e.g. legal, sociological or management).

ENAR conferences strive to make use of the most innovative, participatory and result-oriented methods. Expect some surprises!
