The European Commission is organising this year’s annual forum to promote diversity and inclusion at the workplace.
Since the principle of equal pay for men and women introduced in the Treaty of Rome in 1957 and gender equality directives adopted since the 1970s, after almost 20 years of the Race Equality and Employment Equal Treatment Directives, 10 years of the voluntary initiative network of the EU Platform of Diversity Charters and four years of the Strategic engagement for gender equality 2016-2019 and European Commissions’ List of Action to advance LGBTI equality, a lot has happened in the field of equality, non-discrimination and diversity in Europe.
It is time to take stock, how these and other developments have influenced equality in Europe and at the workplace, to see how can we all advance the discourse of diversity and inclusion, how role models can make a change and what is needed from the leaders.
The Annual Forum will bring together around 200 diversity experts, businesses, civil society and public sector representatives.
Join Catalyst’s Allyson Zimmermann, Executive Director, Europe as she discusses “More diversity in the top – can we overcome the challenge?”
