Launched in February 2020 at SKEMA’s campuses, the competition invited SKEMA students to design their school’s multi-campus campaign on “Equality, Diversity and Inclusion”, by creating a poster or a video on three possible themes: fighting sexual violence and sexism in the workplace, promoting diversity and inclusion in organisations, and winning the battle for professional gender equality.
“The competition was an out-and-out success. A big thank-you to all the participants and the key figures in the jury.The projects submitted were highly creative and of excellent quality; it was hard to choose between them. The winning posters will be distributed in the 2020 autumn season at the SKEMA campuses to further the advancement of professional gender equality and the fight against sexism” said Stéphanie Chasserio, SKEMA professor and member of the Woman in Business Chair.
Michel Ferrary (affiliated researcher at SKEMA who directs the office of the SKEMA Observatory on the Feminisation of Business, and a member of the Higher Council for Gender Equality), Helen Bollaert (director of research, SKEMA) and Elise Tosi (director of qualifications and accreditations, SKEMA), were part of the jury. Other members included Anne-Sophie Marichez (global head talent acquisition – head of global hr – legal, Roquette), Odile Lepercq (president of the FCE – Women Entrepreneurs – for Greater Lille), Sophie Coudreuse (equal opportunities delegate, Radio France), Carole Goubot (business chargé d’affaires, BNP Paribas) and Véronique Prouvost (flow automation project manager, Arc).
The projects were assessed on the clarity of their message, their originality and the relevance of the content to the theme in question.
