1) Preparing the collaboration
The company starts by submitting its participation request to the Ministry of Equality. This is a voluntary, consensual approach. A convention is drawn up in order to prepare a positive actions project.
The Ministry supports the company in its project with advice, using external consultants and financial supports in particular.
The company's application is submitted to the Positive Actions Committee for advice, with the Committee comprising representatives from various ministries and administrations as well as representatives from professional chambers.
If the recommendation is favorable, a convention is finalized between the Ministry and the company to define the conditions of collaboration for the development of a positive actions project.
