 puce_diversity_Day_Awards CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION

Winners will be selected according to the main criteria below, each of which will be graded by the jury:

  • Impact of the practice: it is not restricted to words and to a declaration of intent but has been translated into concrete actions and has a measurable impact on both the target public and the smooth running of the organisation.
  • The innovative nature of the action.
  • The exemplary and replicable nature of the initiative: the practice should be an inspiring example that can be adapted to other organisations or other relevant areas.
  • The level of implementation of the practice: extent and scope according to the size of the company.
  • How the project is governed.
  • Integration as part of a long-term approach: the practice should be enshrined in a continuous improvement process and must not be a one-off, anecdotal event. It should be embedded sustainably in the strategy of the organisation.



Participation is free and open to any organisation set up in Luxembourg whether it is a signatory of the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg or not, and irrespective of its size, its status - private, public, or not-for-profit - and its field of activity.

Organisations can submit several files as long as each of them relates to a separate, distinct project; one file per practice is accepted. Should you want to apply in several categories and for several projects, you must submit as many files as there are projects.
