“Recruitment: how to promote an egalitarian process?” workshop

Gender equality is a lever for innovation, performance and attractiveness for organisations. Recruitment and career development processes must therefore be designed to make this equality a reality at all levels of the hierarchy. However, unconscious biases can influence recruitment at each stage.

Come and discover the tools and approaches that can be implemented and the possible benefits for the organization. This workshop combines theoretical content, discussions, concrete tools and simulations.
