The guide contains good practice examples and case studies from the Danish Institute for Human Rights and other national equality bodies. It is designed for equality bodies to help them build knowledge and a greater understanding of instruments and approaches available to promote diversity to employers.
Ensuring diversity in the workplace is a fundamental element in the pursuit of equality and equal opportunities for all. Diversity in the workplace implies building working environments that value dignity and respect for all, that benefit from the advantages of diverse perspectives, and that encourage learning from others who are not the same.
Significant social and legislative progress has been achieved in Europe over the years and equality bodies have and continue to play an active role in the advancement of diversity in the workplace. Their work, often in collaboration with employers, social partners, trade unions, employers organisations and other actors in the field is key to making diversity in the workplace a reality.
Equinet wishes through this publication to support equality bodies in this endeavour and offer practical steps and guidance to usefully put the concepts of diversity and equality policies into practice. This publication is designed for national equality bodies to help them build knowledge and a greater understanding of instruments and approaches available to promote diversity to employers.
The ambition of the publication is to encourage equality bodies to use this guide as a useful resource to develop, refine or improve their own approach or scheme to promoting diversity to employers.
