Diversity news at the Luxembourg

Intergenerational management conference organized by POG

The POG, the Luxembourg HR network, is organising a conference on intergenerational management on 25 June. 

Today in companies, young people born in the 90s, 40-year-olds and pre-retired seniors live side by side. While some managers fear this generation gap, it can actually represent an opportunity... provided they manage it well. But how can we make different generations work together and best manage this intergenerational diversity?

Three renowned speakers will share their experience in this field of generational cohabitation. Sophie Cuny (COO of the law firm Luther) will present their field approach to the integration of the Millenials and their expectations. This will be followed by a presentation by Christelle Brignoli (Managing Director of Great Place to Work) on the issue of intergenerational management.

Marie Claire Fécherolle Turbang (CEO of Gold4Silver) will close this event by providing support for seniors over 50 to reinvent themselves in a new professional life by using the tool developed "Looking in the mirror".

 

When? June 25, 2019, from 5:30 pm to 7 pm.

Where? Hôtel Parc Alvisse (120 Route d'Echternach, 1453 Luxembourg)

 

Registration required by e-mail: info@pog.lu

The discussions will continue over a cocktail.

Are you a woman and cross-border commuter? Testify on your experience.

Our signatory, ASTI (Association de Soutien aux Travailleurs Immigrés) is looking for women from France, Belgium and Germany who are cross-border commuters to collect testimonies that will be used to write a documentary theatre play which will be directed by Sophie Langevin at the Théâtre d'Esch in June 2020. This research concerns women who work in maintenance and sales, but also in the private sector as managers or assistants.

Based on testimonies from cross-border commuters, the film director Sophie Langevin presents the words of women who routinely cross the borders of the Grand Duchy in the morning and evening.

The interviews will take place during the month of June 2019 (date and place to be agreed according to your availability).

The testimonies collected will be treated strictly anonymously. If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact :

  • Christophe Sohn (researcher at LISER, border specialist) : sohn@liser.lu

The Partners

The project "Les frontières - Terra Incognita" is produced by the theatre of Esch and the Compagnie du Grand Boube, with the support of the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and the Association de Soutien aux Travailleurs Immigrés (ASTI).

EU-wide LGBTI survey

 

The second wave of the European survey of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, non-binary, and other gender non-conforming people is launched.

Besides occasional news reports about discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people, there is very little comparable data collected across the EU about the everyday experiences of LGBTI people with respect to discrimination.

To support equal treatment legislation and policy making, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has launched an EU-wide LGBTI survey, with a questionnaire that is available online and awaits the opinions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people over the age of 15 living in the European Union, N. Macedonia or Serbia.

The participation in the survey is very important. All answers will be processed in an anonymous way ensuring that it will not be possible for anyone to identify your answers when the results are presented.

Based on the survey results, national and European policy makers as well as non-governmental or civil society organisations will be able to better target their advocacy strategies and activities to support the LGBTI community to live and express themselves freely without discrimination. In order to give weight to the results, the European LGBTI Survey counts on the participation of a large and diverse group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and Intersex people from each country. This is the second wave of an EU-wide effort to collect LGBTI experiences in the framework of the ever largest survey made in this field
