Diversity news at the Luxembourg

On the 11th of May, let's act for diversity

On Tuesday the 31st of January was held the preparation workshop for the Diversity Day. Around sixty people from different organisations met at Brown Brothers Harriman to reflect on potential actions and get inspired for the national day for diversity.

The Diversity Day is the perfect occasion to set up fun and creative actions to raise awareness on diversity. This day is a great opportunity to show that companies’ plurality is an asset, but also to challenge misconceptions and stereotypes.

To be part of the Diversity Day, companies can organize one or several actions internally and/or externally, according to their priorities. Once the action is planned, they can submit it on the Charter’s website until April 18th at the latest, if they want to be among the official visit of the Minister. Companies whose actions are innovative and/or creative might benefit from an official visit by the Minister for Family and Integration, Mrs Corinne Cahen, on May 11.

In 2016, more than 90 actions have been organised for the Diversity Day. And you, will you act on May 11?

Leading and coaching across cultures

During a three-day seminar, leaders and managers will be coached to systematically integrate the cross-cultural dimension in their work. This program is ICF accredited (International Coach Federation).

From 21st to 23rd June 2017 (at the Mondorf Thermal Center)

Speakers: Philippe Rosinski, coach and author of “Coaching across cultures” and “Global coaching” and Frédérique Genton, intercultural coach, advisor and consultant

 

On the agenda of this seminar, you will find theoretical parts and then practice through scenarios and case studies:

  • First day: integrating the cross-cultural dimension into leadership and coaching. How to go from ethnocentrism to cultural diversity? How to go outside one’s comfort zone and identify new opportunities?
  • Second day: leading and coaching of individuals, teams and organisations. How to identify cross-cultural orientations and those of others in order to bridge the gap between them? How to leverage differences?
  • Third day: engaging in your own high-performance and high-fulfillment journey. How to achieve unity in diversity?
