Diversity news at the Luxembourg

Call for participants: Strasbourg university to organize a research project on diversity

 

 

For a research project on Diversity, the professor Hélène Langinier would like to interview auditors within the Big Four (women and men) from Asia, Mauritius and Eastern Europe on their career progression for 30 minutes.

 

The aim of this project is to compare men’s and women’s experiences to show that women coming from these countries have opportunities to progress in Luxembourg. She wants to highlight what they bring to the organisation and how other companies and candidates can learn from these experiences.

 

If you want to share your experience, please contact the Professor Langinier.

« GRAND H » : DOCUMENTARY CALLING FOR CROWDFUNDING

Following the awareness raising campaign "I'm not a refugee" and after the migratory wave of 2015, issues related to migrant people are still existing. This campaign aimed to break the distance between them and the residents, but also to reduce fears, dispel prejudices and give refugees a face; in short, to re-humanize them.

Despite this, this issue seems to persist and remains a real hot topic. This leads us to question ourselves as citizens and to question our relationship with the other. 

The European Union seems determined to further outsource its asylum policy in transit countries such as Libya. And that's why Frédérique Buck embarks on a poignant documentary that addresses the question  « How to reconcile a "rational" migration policy and Humanity?  ». Writing and filming have been covered financially but, unfortunately, post-production still is not. It is at this moment that citizen financing or "crowdfunding" makes sense.  

If you, as an non-profit organization, company or simply as a citizen, wish to support this project then all you have to do is click on this link

In case of question, do not hesitate to ask it here. 

 

 

Diversity Network: Can a company’s LGBTI commitment help shaping society?

diversity network on LGBTI december 15 from 12 to 2pm at Linklaters
According to the « Diversity & Business » Barometer 2016, 45% of the Diversity Charter signatories address sexual orientation within their diversity management policy. However, only 17% of the LGBTI co-workers are directly targeted by the signatories’ diversity policies.
 
First concrete best practices on the LGBTI topic are starting to emerge in Luxembourg, reflecting the companies’ commitment towards LGBTI inclusion within the workplace. Other companies are well-known for their LGBTI commitment, such as Accenture in Ireland which is the leading company on LGBTI inclusion there. 
 
During this Diversity Network we will discuss whether a companies' diversity actions particularly on the LGBTI topic can help shaping a more inclusive and modern society?
