Diversity news at the Luxembourg

Religious diversity in the workplace

The European Network Against Racism (ENAR), located in Brussels, published in December 2016 a toolkit related to religious diversity management in the workplace. To implement the concepts and good practices presented in the toolkit, the ENAR organises a training for employers willing to discover more on the topic.

This training will highlight good practices encouraging an open and inclusive workplace, and allow participants to exchange on barriers linked to religious diversity. Finally, this training will give employers notions to manage this kind of diversity in an innovative way.

This program includes a consultation with a trainer to exchange on religious diversity within your organisation and an interactive presentation to implement the toolkit.

Find out more information and the cost of the training here and do not hesitate to contact Sarah Chander for more details.

International Day against homophobia

On May 17th, the International Day against homophobia and transphobia will be celebrated in at least 130 countries. On that day, in 1990, the World Health Organisation (WHO) withdraw homosexuality from the list of mental disorders.

In Luxembourg, during this day, the Centre d'Information GAy et LEsbien (CIGALE), Rosa Lëtzebuerg asbl, the Association de Soutien aux Travailleurs Immigrés (ASTI) and Amnesty International Luxembourg will carry out a public action in order to attract the attention on the discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people.

Let's gather on Wednesday 17 May, from 10am to 1pm at the city center (Grand rue)

A stand will raise awareness and inform you on the situation of LGBTI people across the world.

This is also an action to show support to gay men in Chechnya who were recently kidnapped, tortured or killed because of their sexual orientation. This action will also support refugees and asylum seekers who left their country because of their sexual orientation, their gender identity and/or their gender expression. Do not hesitate to join this action by visiting their stand!
