The HUMAN RESOURCES & DIVERSITY specialization

Diversity, difference, multiple identities, mutual understanding, but also conflict and negotiation are not exceptions but the basic materials our world is made of. What is new is their visibility as well as the growing interdependence between the actors of this multi-coloured world. You know that the best opportunity to strengthen organizations, society and culture is to moderate diversity. That's exactly what you will be doing here. You will learn how discourses about identity can generate recognition or discrimination. You will develop future-oriented solutions for ethically dealing with diversity and at the same time benefitting from their synergy. On this basis, you will develop a diversity-based approach to leadership that is able to actively accompany this change in organizations and society.
