Business school launches the first certified Diversity and Inclusion course


Europe’s oldest business school, ESCP Europe has launched the first certified Diversity and Inclusion course.

The responsibility for creating an inclusive working environment often falls to business leaders or specialists within an HR department, yet very few people have any formal training in how to implement inclusion initiatives.

To address this skills gap, ESCP Europe Business Schools have partnered with world-leading diversity and inclusion consultancy, Frost Included, launching the certified Diversity and Inclusion course.

The pioneering new course will bring together professionals from a diverse range of roles, industries, nationalities, and backgrounds, with a focus on shared experiences and community learning, and further support through webinars after the two-day session has ended.

The seminar will be hosted at ESCP Europe’s London campus on 7 and 8 December 2017.

Over the two days, delegates will learn practical strategies for recruiting, building and managing diverse teams and creating inclusive companies cultures.

Speakers include Stephen Frost, who acts as an advisor on diversity and inclusion to the UK government, KPMG, HSBC and was Head of Diversity and Inclusion for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games; Professor of Management, Claudia Jonczyk; and several Frost Included Associates, including Manuel Wachter, who has worked on inclusion initiatives with organisations like The World Bank, L’Oreal and the World Economic Forum, and is also Managing Associate of Frost Included.

Established in 1819, ESCP Europe is the world’s oldest business school. With six urban campuses spread across Europe, its mission is to develop the next generation of transnational business leaders, preparing them to embrace the opportunities offered by cultural diversity.
