In addition to its research centres, EDHEC has created chairs and initiatives whose main activity is to produce studies aimed at enlightening managers and the public sphere on issues that are crucial for the future of the business world and new generations.
Over more than a decade we have studied organizations that profit from change, developed a maturity model for the future preparedness of organizations and a comprehensive set of practices for enabling foresight, innovation and transformation (FIT).
EDHEC Open-Leadership was created in response to the Diversity issues and challenges faced by companies. Our objective is to innovate in order to accelerate the progress of diversity in companies and to achieve the "managerial transition" required for organizations that wish to continue to develop in an innovative, sustainable and inclusive manner.
This chair, together with the research conducted by EDHEC Risk Institute in the area of climate investing, prefigures the creation of a new institute, the EDHEC Risk Climate Impact Institute (ERCII), which will be officially launched at the end of 2021.
