Description of the action

Northern Trust launched a Luxembourg Diversity andinclusion Committee which focuses on fostering an environment that embraces a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture that empowers us to recognise and value every difference.

In order to foster an inclusive culture, Northern Trust focused on initiating the launch of two Business Resource Councils (employee networks) dedicated to Women in Leadership and Multi-culturalism. We are hosting a series of events throughout the year to celebrate diversity andinclusion in the workplace. The Committee’s last accomplishment included the celebration of the Luxembourg Pride by organising a Human Pride flag.
