Diversity and inclusion:
French and American perspectives
Presented by the Francophile club, a Student Group at Harvard Kennedy School and
the HKS Student VP of Diversity
A solution-oriented symposium
Inclusion is understood as the process by which efforts are made to ensure equal opportunities for all, regardless of sexual preferences, religious beliefs, ethnicity, gender, disability, social background or any other part of their identity. This innovative symposium will facilitate best practices sharing between the French and American models of inclusion by bringing together students, faculty, NGOs, companies and artists from France and the US.
Hosted at the Harvard Kennedy School, this event is co-organized by the Harvard Club of France on Campus and the HKS Vice-President of Diversity, with the support of the French Consulate General in Boston, the French Institute, the French cultural services, the Harvard Kennedy School Student Government, EFGB, CPL, Staples and the FXB Center.
Following the symposium, recommandations will be published to national and local governments, companies, NGOs and other diversity and inclusion stakeholders.
