The 4th Equality Summit - Equality and diversity in employment - took place on 14-16 November 2010 in Brussels. The Summit, co-organized by the Belgian Presidency and the European Commission, brought together 500 high-level representatives of the Member States, of candidate countries, EFTA countries, social partners, equality bodies, European NGO's, and representatives of international organizations. Ten years after Directive 2000/78/CE establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation, and Directive 2000/43/CE implementing the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin, the 4th Equality Summit concentrated on combating discrimination and promoting equality in employment. The Summit aims at taking stock of the policies implemented to promote non-discrimination and diversity in employment, by examining which tools and practices proved most efficient, and by identifying future lines of action. The Summit also offers the opportunity to look at the role of the key actors, which are the social partners and public employers. On 16 November, László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, made a closing statement. Joëlle Milquet, acting Belgian Minister for Employment and Equal Opportunities in charge of Immigration and Asylum policy and President in office of the Council, moderated the session with Ministers and made a closing statement.
