Hence a three-day virtual fair, Wednesday 8, Thursday 9 and Friday 10 December, during which people with disabilities can apply for 70 positions in sport, but also communication, IT, planning. sites or management.

“Returning fairness to the application process”

However, jobs are not reserved for the disabled. “No one will be hired because they have a disability: it is skill that will prevail in fine, warns Chantal Lasnier, talent and diversity manager for Paris 2024.

The idea of ​​these three days of recruitment by chat or telephone, for which candidates have until Tuesday, December 7 to register on the site, is in fact to identify the specific needs of each during the recruitment process.

“For example, it would be inappropriate to organize a telephone interview with a hearing-impaired person, or to keep a mask with them preventing them from reading our lips, illustrates Chantal Lasnier for whom it is “Restore fairness to the application process.” “

“We have a responsibility to promote a more inclusive society”

It is also a way for Paris 2024 to emphasize to people with disabilities that the Games need them to be a success.

“We have a responsibility to promote a more inclusive society: it involves the diversity of our recruitments, explains the president of Paris 2024 Tony Estanguet. I am convinced that diversity is synonymous with performance and creativity to organize Games that will be at the same time spectacular, inclusive and engaged. Our challenge is to make it known that each of our offers is open to everyone. “

The three-time Olympic canoe champion also signed an agreement with Agefiph in mid-November aimed at strengthening the actions of the organizing committee to remove the obstacles to hiring linked to disability.

Integrate into teams

“We want to ensure that our teams reflect our audience, develops Chantal Lasnier. But this audience is the whole world, including the 15% of disabled people in the world! “

This targeted recruitment will also make it possible to identify with each candidate the specific needs that their disability will require in their future position, another concern of the organizing committee, which strives to ensure that the disabled are well integrated into the teams.

“The most important thing is inclusion: if we do not give ourselves the means to integrate people with disabilities, our discourse on diversity would be meaningless, insists Chantal Lasnier. It is because they are integrated into the teams that it works. “
