After the successful launch in 2017 and 2018, Croatian, Slovenian and Romanian Diversity Charters have joined again forces to accelerate the inclusion and promotion of diversity management in the region.
The programme brings together a wide range of stakeholders and expertise and is designed to enable signatory organisations to embed diversity on a more strategic level, taking a step forward from one-off initiatives. It equips participants with the necessary tools, knowledge and skills to step away from improvisations and to approach D&I more strategically.
7 D&I Training Modules and a Regional Diversity Mentorship Scheme are a powerful learning and mentorship framework for the Charter’ signatories in these countries, enabling them to address more practically and strategically the principles stated in the Charters.
Tackling D&I issues in a practical and interactive manner help signatories becoming more active in the field of diversity, while establishing a solid framework for interactions and best practice sharing among signatory organisations.
