Comparaison des formations à la diversité : la perception des étudiants et des professionnels est-elle un aiguillon vers l’action ?
AbstractThe awareness of the need for diversity is becoming an important social skill for companies. Training is this area appears mixed and undervalued in France. The first phase of the research sought to establish the availability of training courses in France and in Great Britain (to provide a comparison) coupled with a further study evaluating the perception of diversity management training on a group of international students. This research was followed up by an exploratory study of the differences in opinion held by students and professionals in France of their training in this area. The extent of the training received by French students was found to be similar to that of the international students, where training in Corporate Social Responsibility was found to be 46% in France and 40% for the international students and 54% in France versus 42% for the international group concerning Diversity Management. However, with only 14% of the professionals studied claiming to have received information or training in diversity management, it appears that until the arrival of new graduates trained in this area to reinforce the practice of diversity management in the company, professionals conforming to existing theoretical frameworks will contribute to the growth in executive education in order to counter the retention of stereotypes and discriminatory behaviour. Such an approach allows company diversity to pass from being a positive statement to an integrated practice.
