About the Leadership and Diversity Chair

Junko Takagi, Ph.D.

The Leadership and Diversity Chair, supported by L'Oréal, is a think tank which promotes exchanges between researchers, business leaders and students in order to develop innovative perspectives and new approaches to leadership and diversity through the creation and diffusion of knowledge (savoir), skills (savoir-faire), and attitudes (savoir-être).

The commitment by L'Oréal to support this Chair reflects the engagement and active role of these multinational enterprises in the development of a wide range of organizational diversity related activities and initiatives, and their relationship to different forms of leadership.

The Chair's key activity areas include the development and production of academic research and case studies, the organization of conferences, and a teaching program of 6 months for ESSEC students including a seminar series and projects in cooperation with our partner.

Students can inquire about the Chair activities and teaching programs throughout the academic year here. The formal application process opens in mid fall of each year. More information about the application process can be found on this website.

The Chair is open to new partnerships and projects. If you are interested in working with us, please consult our program flyer. We welcome your feedback. If you have any suggestions or questions please send us an email.
