The Centre des Jeunes Dirigeants
Created in 1938 by Jean Mersch, the Centre des Jeunes Dirigeants (CJD) is joined by new members every year: in 2020, the CJD represented over 5,700 women and men in France (business executives and senior managers). The CJD is also established in 16 countries worldwide.
Founded on the conviction that an economy that serves people is the key to the competitiveness of French businesses, the non-partisan movement puts forward concrete proposals to boost employment and sustain businesses.
A boundless source of collective intelligence, the CJD has constantly provided real solutions to social issues for over 80 years, and notably in terms of employment, by supplying its members, business executives and senior managers with tools for lifelong learning, discussion and innovation.
The Paris section is one of the largest in France with some one hundred business executives and senior managers. The section is proud to support its members’ initiative in this commitment to making an aspect of our artistic heritage available to all.
In 2018, the CJD supported the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac through three actions: the restoration of the clothing worn by the polar explorer Paul-Emile Victor; the “travel box” educational tool; and the action undertaken by the museum in partnership with the justice ministry’s youth protection department (Protection Judiciaire de la Jeunesse).
In 2020, the CJD chose to renew its commitment alongside the museum by supporting the restoration of a Kahili, a state staff from Oceania dating from the late 18th century, as well as training for social workers & representatives.
