The month of May marks European Diversity Month across the EU. We’re calling on Romanian companies and organisations to join forces with us, the European Commission, to shine a spotlight on the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in society by organising events and activities throughout May.

The European Diversity Month is organised by the EU Platform of Diversity Charters together with the national Charters and their signatories. 

Its main aim is to bring together the national Diversity Charters, small and big employers, private companies, public organisations, non-profit associations around a common goal – to promote diversity in the workplace and in society.

It provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to diversity. By doing so, you will join thousands of companies all over the EU who will be also organising events, training; running awareness-raising campaigns, etc.

Whether you are signatory of the Romanian Diversity Charter or not, this is a month to celebrate and promote diversity at the workplace and in society, to raise awareness on benefits of diversity and inclusion and show what this means for your organisation.

You too can get involved, celebrate, and raise awareness in your organisation with organising an internal event for or with your employees or an open event to public, customers, or suppliers.

Promoting diversity and creating inclusive workplaces is a continuous work but taking part of the Diversity Month is a fantastic opportunity to make it visible.

Get involved

This is your organization’s chance to take a stand and promote diversity and inclusion. Organise activities or events during the month of May: promote your company’s diversity and inclusion policies to staff at workshops or on social media with #EUDiversityMonth for example. Why not use this month as a springboard to develop new initiatives to take your company forward?

You can organise virtual or hybrid awareness raising workshops for employees, round tables with experts, publish a diversity cookbook, run a social media campaign, collaborate with a non-profit organisation or volunteer – be creative in making diversity in your organisation visible.

On the occasion of the EU Diversity Month, the Romanian Diversity Charter organizes o range of actions with the aim to engage Charter’s signatories in the celebration of the first edition of the EU Diversity Month in Romania, by creating at the same time a solid ground for debating and informing about the benefits of diversity and inclusion at the workplace.

The second edition of the Romanian Diversity and Inclusion Forum will be an interactive virtual event promoting an honest dialogue around the challenges faced by Romanian signatory organisations in their diversity journey.

The Forum includes two practical panel discussions with 10+ speakers/ experts with the aim to identify current and emerging challenges as well as pushing new conversations and thinking in the D&I space. It will enable signatory organisations to share experience and understand existing actions and steps that need to be taken to ensure a more diverse, equitable, sustainable and innovative workforce. The Forum will end wit a symbolic “signing” ceremony for the 10 newest signatories with the possibility to address the audience with short leadership messages enforcing their commitment to diversity.
