The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations
 

Mozaïk RH is the leading non-profit Human Resources recruitment and consulting firm specialized in promoting diversity in public and private organizations. It follows a complementary model that marks a break from traditional hiring and career management policies by highlighting candidates’ skills, talents and potential. Mozaïk RH advocates equal opportunity through equal treatment.

Showing that diversity is a source of wealth

Young people, women and people from diverse backgrounds face particular challenges in finding employment. Social enterprises such as Mozaïk RH develop effective and innovative solutions. The PasserElles program provides young women graduates from underprivileged neighborhoods assistance in finding work. PasserElles organizes workshops and offers individual coaching and support with partner businesses to help participants gain a foothold in the job market.

Since last fall, the partnership between Mozaïk RH and the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations has made it possible for 25 young women to participate in the PasserElles program. On average, 50% of participants find a stable job in their field within three months of taking part in the program.

Bridging the gap between schools and businesses, disadvantaged neighborhoods and business districts

The Foundations have also found a way to link this groundbreaking initiative to the corporate world, by setting up a skills sponsorship program with La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild. Paired with a ‘coach’ from the bank, each of the 11 young women will receive individual job interview training, business skills counseling, and be given networking opportunities with the help of their coach.

The young graduates confirm that PasserElles helps them acquire important skills and take a new approach to professional environments, and shows them how to overcome the self-censorship that sometimes hinders job seeking efforts.

The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations are also working with PasserElles program managers within Mozaïk RH to help the program along the road to financial sustainability and to evaluate its impact with the goal of scaling up activities in the future to provide support to as many young women as possible.
