Inclusion

EDUCATION & CULTURE FOR ALL

L’école de la 2ème chance : training young adults without any qualifications

An inclusive society is one which gives everyone a chance.

That’s why the Renault Foundation is working in partnership with L’Ecole de la 2e Chance in the Yvelines area (e2c78).

Its mission? Support training and professional integration for young adults without any qualifications in order to “access the 1st job they will have chosen”. Every year, the School supports more than 400 young people aged 18 to 25 and offers them a personal sandwich course.

A process in which the Renault Group and its employees participate by organising manual skills workshops for young people interested in careers in cottage industries, construction or industry.

A successful gamble as approximately 70% of the young people join a vocational training course or find a job after their time with Ecole e2c78.

énergie Jeunes : for successful education for all

An inclusive society is one which does not let anyone fall.

That’s why the Renault Foundation supports Energie Jeunes. Its raison d’etre? Develop school retention among middle-school pupils from disadvantaged areas.

Thanks to the support of partners such as the Renault Foundation, Energie Jeunes supports thousands of young people attending priority education middle-schools every year. This support is structured around two teaching pathways: “Ma réussite au collège” (My success at middle-school): a training programme for the entire class, and “Boules d’Energie” (Balls of Energy), an educational musical.

Its goal, supported by the Renault Foundation: supporting more than 200,000 pupils between now and 2021. We are participating in two ways to help achieve this :

  • A grant for the organisation in middle-schools located near Renault sites.
  • The involvement of Renault employees who are coming to the end of their careers, passing on their skills directly to the pupils.

Institut de l’Engagement : helping engaged young people build their futures

An inclusive society is one which recognises everyone’s merits!

Every year in France thousands of young people take on volunteer work.

Institut de l’Engagement identifies the most promising profiles from among these young volunteers, without any discriminating criteria and whatever their social or geographical background, and gives them assets which are indispensable for successfully carrying out their future projects. To train up a new generation of engaged young people spreading the values of commitment and citizenship.

As one of the Institute’s partners, the Renault Group supports a dozen of these young people every year within the framework of its Mobilize process undertaken by the Foundation.

How?

  • – By co-funding personalised support for resuming education or looking for work in regions where Renault is established.
  • – Through the commitment of 50 to 100 Renault volunteer employees every year.

Diversité

Fédération Française Handisport : sport for all

An inclusive society is one where everyone can be active.

The Federation Francaise Handisport (FFH) has been working to allow access to sport to everyone with a disability, be it motor or sensory, since 1954.

Playing a sport is about seizing the opportunity to exceed your own expectations, be part of society and enjoy yourself every day. That is why the Renault Foundation supports FFH through two main activities;

  • The development of sports among young people
  • Identifying and supporting future parasport champions

As one of FFH’s main partners, the Renault Group runs its own Parasport Team and, in parallel, is working on vehicles adapted for disabled people.

Handicap International : coming to the aid of vulnerable people across the world wherever it is necessary

An inclusive society is one where no one is left behind.

The Renault Group is working alongside the NGO Handicap International via the Renault Foundation with two main concrete goals:

  • To make our Disability policy international to encourage the inclusion of all, both professionally and socially
  • To strengthen all our awareness activities.

A major partnership dating back 3 years which operates both within and outside the Group.

Action Tank « Entreprise et Pauvreté » : innovating against poverty

An inclusive society is one which fights against exclusion and poverty.

Action Tank is a non-profit organisation created in 2010 with the aim of reducing poverty and exclusion in France.

To achieve this, it uses an innovative approach: social business. This is based on two areas:

  • The creation of research and analysis ecosystems formed by economic and social players. The Renault Group, a member of the organisation’s Board, is part of this.
  • – The experimentation of pilot projects to innovate against exclusion and poverty.

The concrete project run by our Group? Garages Renault Solidaires, designed within the framework of our corporate social entrepreneurship programme Mobilize.

elles bougent : supporting the vocations of female engineers and technicians

An inclusive society is one which enables everyone to choose their career.

The French non-profit organisation Elles bougent has one aim: to improve diversity within the industrial and technological sectors where women remain widely under-represented.

Companies, non-profit organisations, universities, institutions: all the partners of Elles bougent, including the Renault Foundation, are involved in activities publicising personal accounts, raising awareness and providing training to support female vocations.

In particular, the Renault Group is collaborating with Elles bougent to enable young female high-school students to find out more about careers in the automotive sector by talking directly to women from the company.

ONU Femmes  : Renault supports the #HeForShe movement

An inclusive society is one which does not discriminate on the basis of gender.

Since 2016, the Renault Group has been active alongside ONU Femmes France: a daily battle for sexual equality and the empowerment of women, particularly within the company.

The #HeForShe movement, publicised by the Renault Foundation within the Group, encourages everyone to consider and take action on issues of diversity and equality. So that all our employees are involved.

“Because there are obvious facts like male/female equality which apparently need to be recalled; because mixed schools should lead to equally mixed courses; because finally there should no longer be male jobs and female jobs, male companies and female companies….get involved on the HeForShe website to change mentalities.” Oliver Faust, Director of the Renault Foundation

Femmes pour le Dire, Femmes pour Agir  : defending the rights of disabled women

An inclusive society is one which gives itself the means to take care of everyone

Female and disabled but, above all, citizens!

Being a woman and being disabled means living with dual discrimination every day! A situation which Femmes pour le Dire, Femmes pour Agir (FDFA), supported by the Renault Foundation, is fighting. The organisation is working to promote the place of disabled women in society and their participation in social and public life, whatever their disability.

FDFA :

  • Maintains that a disability is not an identity
  • Fights for full and entire recognition of the citizenship of disabled women and for equality between men and women
  • Fights against all forms of discrimination and all forms of violence experienced by disabled women

Courses Odysséa  : moving together against breast cancer

An inclusive society is one which takes action against the diseases which hurt it.

Created by engaged women, Odysséa provides visibility for the struggle against breast cancer, organising charity runs in France’s main cities.

Since its creation in 2002, Odysséa has raised more than 7 million euros which it has distributed to around a hundred groups.

Every year, over a hundred Renault employees strap on their armbands and put on their running shoes to support Odysséa’s work.

Course Spécial Olympics  : changing how we see mental disability

An inclusive society is one which integrates everyone without restricting itself to preconceptions.

It’s a well-known fact: sports aids integration!

That’s why Spécial Olympics is increasing the number of sporting events aimed at changing how we see those who have a mental disability. I.e. 70,000 people in France.

Every year, around twenty Renault employees are proud to take part in the charity relay race alongside 4,000 other engaged runners.

Get involved by running? Support the work of Spécial Olympics France by providing the organisation with friendliness, visibility and financial resources.

La Cravate Solidaire : helping disadvantaged people return to work

An inclusive society is one which helps everyone reintegrate.

La Cravate Solidaire won the call for projects launched by the Renault Foundation in 2018.

What is the aim of this organisation? To collect and distribute work clothes to people trying to reintegrate to increase their chances of finding a job.

Help with clothes but much more than that! La Cravate Solidaire also provides training and coaching sessions, “masterclass” workshops, to support disadvantaged people in their attempts to return to work.

An original project, concrete action and a dynamic team, supported by the Renault Foundation through the allocation of a budget of 90,000 euros to help develop the organisation.

Les Amat’Cœurs : aider les Restaurants du Cœur de la Sarthe

Les Amat’Coeurs won the call for projects reserved for the Renault employees launched by the Renault Foundation in June 2018.

Since 2002, this non-profit organization puts back into its profits to the Restaurants du Coeur in Sarthe. The shows organized by the Amat’Coeurs contribute to make poverty and exclusion go back.

 

The Renault Foundation is happy to support Frédéric Pottier, a Renault employee of Le Mans plant, involved in Les Amat’Coeurs. Our grant will contribute to increase the effects of the Amat’Coeurs actions.
