The Centre des Jeunes Dirigeants
Founded in 1938 by Jean Mersch, the Centre des jeunes dirigeants d'entreprise (CJD) had more than 5,700 members in France in 2021: managers and executives. The CJD is also present in 17 countries around the world.
Founded on the deep conviction that an economy at the service of people is the key to the competitiveness of French companies, the movement is non-partisan and is a force for concrete proposals to boost employment and sustain companies.
For more than 80 years, the CJD has never ceased to provide answers on the ground to societal issues, particularly in terms of employment, by providing its members, both male and female business leaders, with tools for training, exchange and experimentation.
In the past, the CJD has supported the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac in numerous projects, including the restoration of the explorer Paul-Emile Victor's costume, the development of the "Boite à voyages" educational tool, the museum's work in partnership with the Protection Judiciaire de la Jeunesse, and the study and restoration of a Tupinamba feather cloak and a Kahili, an Oceanian chieftain's stick dating from the end of the 18th century.
In 2022, the CJD renewed its support by enabling the acquisition of an ivory statuette of the Attié population and the redesign of the "Boite à voyages".
