This workshop is designed for people in HR functions and DEI teams. The duration of the workshop is 3 hours, divided in 2 sessions with a break in between

With increasing globalization, more and more people are moving across borders and between countries than ever before. Migrants and refugees go abroad to find better lives for themselves. And in some countries, people with migration background represent 10 % up to over 40 % of the local population, depending on migration policies and demographic composition.

However, even for skilled people, there are often many employment barriers and challenges — conscious and unconscious — that prevent the inclusion of people with migration background, or the valorization of the specific skills they can bring into an organization.

People with a migration background can certainly be one of the specific organization’s DEI policies or strategies’ targets. And several business cases show that within DEI organizational culture, people with migration background can add value by improving corporates’ KPI.

But at first, it is necessary to better consider who, in this large group label, may be included: first or second migrants’ generations, refugees and asylum seekers, international students, … These sub-targets may in fact have something in common, and their commonalities can help to standardize some DEI processes and tools. But they can also distinguish among each other for the specific needs and skills they bring into the different phases of the employment journey. These differences need to be considered, thus to develop specific DEI processes and tools along all the phases of the employment journey, from recruitment and selection to career and developing management.

Do you want to be accompanied by the definition of a DEI strategy that considers people with migration background as a target? Do you want to review and to re-define your organization’s employment journey processes and tools, thus to improve corporates’ KPI and to become a best practice on the inclusion of people with migration background?

This 3 hours online training program will help you to design specific processes and tools, within your corporate’s DEI strategy, aimed to include and to valorize people with migration background.
