In January 2018, the School of Public Affairs created a mandatory Management workshop for the students who followed the apprenticeship track. This workshop was designed to help them reflect on their current experience as apprentices and prepare them to enter the work market. Over the course of 12 sessions, they cover topics such as: organization culture, project management, managerial behaviors, conflict management, recruitment, negotiation, etc. Ms. Braescu-Kerlan will reflect on the teachings of such a class and more generally on the need to professionnally orient our students at a key moment of their careers.
Adeline Braescu-Kerlan works within the Policy Lab of the School of Public Affairs at Sciences Po. She is in charge of 2 flagship programs of the Policy Lab: the development of the Incubator of Public Policies and the management of the Case Studies. Adeline also taught a Management class to Master students this Semester. Prior to joining Sciences Po, Adeline has had several professional lives, exploring her 2 passions: Public Health and Diversity & Inclusion issues. She started her career at Capgemini Consulting as a Consultant in the French Healthcare System. She provided technical support to semi-private hospitals in order to sustain financial balance. Adeline later joined the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI): she contributed to develop CHAI's office in the Democratic Republic of Congo, through the coordination of the National Strategic Plan to Fight Malaria in the Private Sector.
Passionate about Diversity & Inclusion issues, she dedicated a few years to this specific topic. As the General Secretary of the WoMen'Up association, she promoted Gender Diversity among French students. She then co-created her own company (The Boson Project) to contribute to the development of people under 30 in leadership positions in private companies. Finally, she worked for 2 years at the Headquarters of Sodexo (460 00 employees in 80 countries) as a Diversity & Inclusion manager. Adeline graduated from Sciences Po (Master in Public Affairs – Cum Laude) and Essec Business School.
