ACHIEVEMENT/ What is your project/ initiative/startup/company all about?

Cofounder of AFMD, our action in organisations for 8 years is to promote and enhance every diversity from human capital as a condition sine qua non for a sustainable growth.
Our companies have to be at the image of our country.
Struggling against all the discriminations in firm and thus promote inclusion with all our keen might, is favouring positive economy.

LOCATION/ In which city, country, part of the world do you conduct your activities?

France / Europe

IMPACT/ What is the positive economic, social, political, environmental…of the activity, project, initiative, startup, company?

Thanks to the creation and the development of the french association ‘Association française des managers de la diversité’, we contributed to professionalize the management of diversity to boost action rather than speeches.

We created tools in the service of managers to combine economic and social performance. In fact, promoting, enhancing and managing the diversity of the human capital represent a lever of sustainable growth and increase its performance and profitability in the long term.
