The Hellenic-Romanian Bilateral Chamber of Commerce has signed the Romanian Diversity Charter

"It’s an honor for us to join the Romanian Diversity Charter and champion the Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, adopting its principles to ensure diversity, equal opportunities and social inclusion.

We sign the Diversity Charter with the conviction that different experiences and perspectives lead to the achievement of great things. We believe in equal opportunities and aim to increase these values and practices in our organizational culture.

Adherence to the principles of the Charter is a first step in our plan to generate actions with a positive impact on the Romanian society. Over the past years, we have learned that all of our members need to feel supported and respected and that we need to provide opportunities and same level of service for everyone.

We are involved in social and humanitarian projects together with organizations that support diversity, and we are committed to their development. The signing of the Diversity Charter represents for us a reaffirmation of our commitment as an organization to support diversity and equity actively and continuously.

Last but not least, we will encourage other companies to join in, because these values are the foundation on which we can build a diverse and inclusive community together”, declared Anamaria Diaconescu, Director of The Hellenic-Romanian Bilateral Chamber of Commerce.

The Hellenic-Romanian Bilateral Chamber of Commerce is the most representative institution for the Greek Business Community in Romania. Since 2011 it has the status of Romanian legal person of public utility.

The object of the Chamber is to protect and develop trade relations, jobs, services and exports and to develop economic and trade relations between Greece and Romania.

In parallel, it supports any attempt to improve educational and cultural relations between the two countries, thus enhancing the business relationship between Greece and Romania.

The Chamber of Commerce's mission is to take the pulse of the market and systematically record the real needs of Greek companies. Its informative and advisory role allows it to intervene with the state institutions in order to find solutions for the problems of the companies and to ensure their continuous development.

The members of the Chamber are companies with Greek or mixed interests operating on the territory of Romania and Greece.

The official launch of the Romanian Diversity Charter took place on 18 April 2018, Romania thus becoming the 21st country in the European Union with a Diversity Charter and benefiting from the membership in the European Diversity Platform. Today, the Charter brings together 164 signatories, covering approx. 220.000 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. Under the auspices of the Romanian Diversity Charter, several initiatives have taken place (experience exchanges, workshops, seminars, debates, task forces, learning and mentorship programs) where different practices and organizational policies of diversity management were presented, analysed, debated and disseminated. Since 2021 the Charter and its signatories celebrate together the EU Diversity Month to promote diversity in the workplace and in society.
