THE LATEST NEWS ON EUROPEAN DIVERSITY CHARTERS

The latest edition of the newsletter of the European Platform of Diversity Charters was published this month and shares recent news on diversity and inclusion in the European Union: conferences, publications, and concrete actions in favour of equal opportunities.

 

In Germany, the German Diversity Charter mobilized its signatories around a diversity promotion campaign #FlaggefürVielfalt. Aware of their responsibility and their role of influence in society, the signatory companies sent a strong signal to their partners, customers and employees by flying the "flag of diversity". More details on the campaign here.

 

The Dutch Diversity Charter approaches the subject of diversity in the media. In the Netherlands, nine companies in this sector have committed themselves to diversity and inclusion by signing the national charter. A signature that was accompanied by a specific meeting on cultural and ethnic diversity to address the difficulty of the media in recruiting journalists from multicultural backgrounds.

A city for all: the objective of the City of Luxembourg

 

The 8th edition of the Weeks of Awareness of Specific Needs, led by the City's Participatory Committee and organized in collaboration with many concerned associations and partners, will take place from 27 April to 12 June 2019.

 

A better knowledge of the other can open many doors: the exchange between people with special needs and the general public as well as overcoming the fear of the other are at the heart of this initiative. The aim of these awareness weeks is to enable participants to create links between themselves and thus encourage a better and sustainable common life within the city of Luxembourg. 

 

A myriad of information stands, activities, conferences, film screenings and exhibitions will give you a better understanding of the daily life and needs of the people involved. As in previous years, meals in the dark will also be on the agenda again. (May 2, 8, 23 and 28 and June 5)

 

This year's highlights are: the action and sports day at Place d'Armes on May 18 and of course the traditional "Inclusion" gala on June 7.

Did you say stereotype?

IMS will address the subject of equality between women and men at the Luxembourg Sustainability Forum 2019.

Gender inequality has its roots in our representations. How does our brain work? How can we detect our unconscious biases? What images are being spread concerning women and men?

Insidiously, stereotypes live in our practices and behaviours at the very core of the business world. Gender equality in the workplace is a subject that is too often considered as resolved or almost. Decoding and debate with high-level experts. Explosive findings and guidelines for action.
