EU Diversity Month in Romania
The second virtual national Diversity and Inclusion Forum took place on 25th of May promoting an honest dialogue around the challenges faced by Romanian signatory organisations in their diversity journey.
The Forum included two practical panel discussions with 15 speakers from European Commission (video message by the Head of the Representation of the European Commission to Bucharest, Ramona Chiriac), IBM, IKEA, Ursus, BCR, Edenred, Sanofi, Societe Generale Global Solution Center, Enel, Philip Morris, Janssen – Johnson & Johnson and Amber with the aim to identify current and emerging challenges as well as pushing new conversations and ways of thinking in the D&I space.
Topics covered diversity in recruitment and talent management, value for disability, leadership and diversity, multigenerational diversity, gender equality and equal pay, ethnic diversity and LGBT+ inclusion.
A symbolic “signing” ceremony for the 10 newest signatories was also part of the Forum with the possibility to address the audience with short leadership messages enforcing their commitment to diversity. On this occasion we said a warm welcome to Mega Image, NN, TEVA Romania, Ursus, Brico Depot, MOL Romania, HP Entreprise, Evalueserve, Druckfarben, The Hellenic-Romanian Chamber of Commerce.
In addition, a diversity column with 10 + interviews with D&I experts, 2 dedicated newsletters and 26 inspirational quotes by Charter’s ambassadors and CEOs brought valuable content to debate and reflect on.
It was great and we are looking forward to the next editions 😊
