We need to work together to overcome these challenging times. Diversity and inclusion foster cohesive communities and capitalise on innovation and growth. To do this we must use all talents and leave no one behind. It is therefore important to assess where we stand and whether our diversity policies are delivering. I am calling for every organisation join me during May 2023 to celebrate European Diversity Month and take a firm stance for diverse, inclusive and equal workplaces.
Helena Dalli, European Commissioner for Equality
To start any journey or to assess your progress, you need to know where you stand. This year, we invite all organisations to put the assessment of diversity and inclusion into the spotlight and to ask themselves: Do our diversity policies work? Do we know our employee mix? Are we open to all diverse talents? Are our policies and strategies supporting us in creating respectful, empowering and inspiring environments for everyone?
Being successful means knowing how to build bridges. Bridges with newcomers, team members, business partners, suppliers, customers and public authorities; and between different policies and strategies within an organisation.
Secure visibility for your efforts by including them on our map of events and activities taking place in May. It takes five minutes and can be done in your own language.
