The 7th edition of the Diversity Day took place in the Grand Duchy on May 20, 2021. This day is part of the European Commission's European Diversity Month. Organisations were invited to launch initiatives to illustrate their commitment to diversity themes through striking and entertaining actions.
In Luxembourg, on this day coordinated by the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg, 6 organisations received Ms Corinne Cahen, Minister for Family Affairs, Integration and the Greater Region and Patron of the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg.
On the programme of this #DiversityDay21: a day highlighting the different forms of diversity and proposing awareness-raising activities on disability, LGBTI inclusion, diversity as a corporate value or cultural and culinary diversity. Once again, organisations adapted their events to celebrate diversity within their premises - safely and in compliance with sanitary measures.
Discover all the activities on 20 May on the Diversity Charter website.
