Let's talk about racism – EU Anti-Racism Action Plan and its impact

BBLF and the Centre for the Study of Democracy launched in September 2020 the Diversity Charter Bulgaria*: a joint initiative that aims to encourage and promote corporate policies and best practice in equality, recognition of diversity and inclusion in the workplaces, as well as help build mutual respect and tolerance in society. The Bulgarian Charter is part of the EU platform of diversity charters that features the national charters of 26 member states representing over 12 000 companies in the EU and their over 16 million staff members.

Now BBLF has the pleasure of inviting you to attend the EU Platform of Diversity Charters online workshop-roundtable “Let’s talk about racism – EU Anti-Racism Action Plan and its impact”.

Discrimination on the grounds of racial or ethnic origin is prohibited in the European Union. Yet such discrimination persists in our society. It is not enough to be against racism. We have to be active against it. This is why on 18 September 2020, the European Commission adopted an ambitious EU anti-racism action plan that sets out a series of measures for the next 5 years.

Business organisations and individual companies have a key role to play in ensuring non-discrimination, diversity and inclusion. Join us in the roundtable discussion and share your experience on how to build an inclusive workplace and society free from racism.

The workshop will include presentation by Michaela Moua, the EU anti-racism coordinator, examples of best practice from Diversity Charter signatories and an open discussion.

About Diversity Charter Bulgaria

A joint initiative of the Centre for the Study of Democracy and the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum to promote diversity management in Bulgaria. The Charter expresses the shared conviction of the signatories that diversity is not only a key factor for creativity, innovation, growth and productivity, but also an incentive for individuals to fully reveal their knowledge, competencies, talents and skills. By signing the Charter, members make a public commitment to create and maintain an inclusive work environment for their employees. Because diversity is our advantage! Find out more: www.diverse-bg.eu
