The European Commission recognises that diversity charters contribute to the fight against discrimination in companies and the promotion of equality. Therefore, since 2010, it has been providing and supporting an EU-wide platform for the exchange between national diversity charters.

Supporting the different initiatives that promote diversity management in companies, this platform allows existing national charters to meet regularly during meetings, expert seminars and an annual forum to share their experiences and good practices and to develop standard tools.

The issues addressed are multiple and linked to the non-discrimination criteria specific to each country. On the other hand, the European initiatives bring together several charters under the same flag and allow the scope of their actions and message to be extended.

The 26 European countries with a national diversity charter are currently part of this platform.
