We are Priscilia and Gabriela, Project Managers of the Diversity Charter. Diversity allows us to benefit from the richness everyone brings to the workplace. It promises a competitive advantage to the organisations that seize this opportunity.
Did you know that implementing a diversity policy is strongly considered a "top-down" decision according to the latest Barometer "Diversity and Enterprise 2021"?
