Helena Dalli, EU Commissioner for Equality

"Let’s all take a bolder stand for diversity and act about it. Let’s show our commitment to equality and this May 2021 celebrate the European Diversity Month together. With more diverse workplaces, we will create a fairer and more equal Europe for all."

Helena Dalli, EU Commissioner for Equality

Focus of the Month

Did you know that over 1 in 2 Europeans (59%) believe that discrimination because of one’s ethnic origin is widespread. One in three people of African descent say they have experienced racist harassment in the five last years. More than 70 years after the Holocaust, widespread antisemitism affects Jewish people in all areas of life in the EU. 

For this reason, the European Diversity Month 2021 brought an extra focus on ethnic and racial diversity inviting organisation to put this topic on their diversity agenda. It was also the main focus of the high-level launch event with Commissioner Dalli on 4 May 2021.
