The Spanish Diversity Charter was launched in March 2009 at the initiative of the European Institute of Diversity Management and Alares Foundation with the support of the Spanish Ministry of Equal Opportunities. More than 600 companies have now signed the Diversity charter in Spain, including Banco Santander, BBVA, Bankinter, Orange, Iberdrola, Grupo Alares, Telefónica Learning Services, Ferrovial, AXA, including companies from both private and public sectors. By signing the Diversity Charter, these companies have committed to comply with equal opportunities and antidiscrimination legislation. They have also committed to adhere to a number of basic principles, such as equal opportunities and respect for diversity in the workplace and making progress in building a diverse workforce by fostering the inclusion of a diverse range of people, of different gender, race, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, belief, age, sexual orientation, and disability. The Charter has celebrated the European Diversity Day 2013, on 11th June, with the support of the Spanish Ministry of Equal Opportunities.
