Let’s all take a bolder stand for diversity and act about it. Let’s show our commitment to equality and this May 2021 celebrate the European Diversity Month together. With more diverse workplaces, we will create a fairer and more equal Europe for all.
Helena Dalli, EU Commissioner for Equality
The European Diversity Month raises awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion in our workplaces and in the society throughout the whole European Union.
Workplace diversity needs to be one of the top priorities for any employer in Europe. We need to create inclusive environments where employees can be themselves, where they are valued for their differences and everyone's talents are fully used. Although promoting diversity and creating inclusive workplaces is an ongoing work, participating in the European Diversity Month this May is a fantastic opportunity to make your efforts visible.
European Diversity Month is organised by the European Commission and the EU Platform of Diversity Charters together with its members. The European Diversity Month is an important initiative to support the European Commission’s long-lasting commitment to fight discrimination and promote diverse and inclusive workplaces.
The European Commission is organising a high-level launch event on 4 May with the Commissioner for Equality, Helena Dalli. This event will gather policy-makers, chief executive officers of diversity charter signatories, other organisations and stakeholders to review and promote the consideration of racial and ethnic origin in diversity strategies.
