Conference on "Business innovation and creation through Diversity"
The European Commission organised a one-day conference on 30 November 2011 to explore innovative approaches to promoting diversity in the workplace. This is part of a project which facilitates an EU-level exchange between organisations promoting and implementing Diversity Charters in Europe. The conference had a special focus on the role of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), public authorities and business in driving the diversity agenda forward. Around 70 participants from diversity initiatives, business and public authorities, as well as experts in the field of Diversity Management attended the conference, which featured a new short film and brochure produced by the exchange platform for the event.
