Description de l'événement
La diversité est aujourd’hui la plus grande richesse de la globalisation et de la société multiculturelle.

À propos de cet événement

Néanmoins les défis de la diversité restent nombreux autant au niveau individuel qu’au niveau groupal et sociétal.

Katherine Phillips, professeure d’Éthique et Leadership à Columbia Business School, lauréate en 2019 du Mentorship Award de l’Academy of Management, va aborder lors de cette conférence le potentiel d’innovation et d’apprentissage des groupes divers. A travers des multiples recherches et études de cas, Katherine Phillips nous convaincra que la gestion des diversités est une source majeure de progrès, mais également un levier important pour combattre les inégalités et l’intolérance.

Cette conférence est financée par la Chaire Internationale, ULB et par la Fondation Bernheim.

Dans le cadre de la Conférence Diversity in Organizations

Page Eventbrite

This event is co-organized by the Centre Emile Bernheim, ULB’s research Institute in Management Science and the HR Circle Solvay.

What diversity dimensions are relevant at the workplace? How do organizations manage diversity and inclusion, and how are they perceived internally and externally? Do various employees truly embrace a culture of inclusion and fully understand what diversity & inclusion means? What organizational processes might unintentionally hamper inclusion? What can your managers do to more effectively manage team diversity and reap its benefits?

These and other questions will be discussed within the context of scientific research and practitioners’ experience. Our aim is cross-fertilization. The program of the conference is rich, combining the academic evidence on organizational diversity (through scientific lectures and poster sessions) with practitioners’ testimonials about their concrete reality of diversity.

In addition, if you want to learn how to concretely set up a Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan, please join our workshop, animated by experienced diversity experts.

This conference will provide the opportunity to network and collaborate with attendees. Our aim is to build bridges, not only between academics, but also between practitioners and academics, as we believe that only together we can bring about change that truly matters.
