Romanian Diversity Charter brings together 117 signatories, covering cca. 160,000 employees from companies, public institutions and NGOs, who have publicly assumed the principles of the Charter, so that diversity, equal opportunities and social inclusion become values acknowledged and respected in Romania. Signing the Charter represents a valuable starting point for organisations wishing to embark on their diversity journey and also provides a framework for companies to develop existing policies. Under the auspices of the Charter, several initiatives have taken place (experience exchanges, workshops, debates, publications) where different practices and organizational policies of diversity management were presented, analyzed, debated and disseminated.
