Learn About Us

Diversity Charters across Europe encourage organisations (non-governmental organisations (NGOs), public bodies, local authorities, private companies and associations) to develop and implement diversity and inclusion policies at the workplace. By signing a charter, the organisation voluntarily commits to promote diversity and equal opportunities regardless of age disability, gender, race or ethnic origin, religion or sexual orientation. Becoming a signatory to a Diversity Charter provides access to a vast peer network, trainings, publications and supporting tools for benchmarking, measuring and monitoring.

Diversity Charter Principles

The first step to joining the Diversity Charter Cyprus is to agree in principle with the main pillars of the Diversity Charter Cyprus, and commit to pursue their implementation at the workplace.

The basic principles of the Diversity Charter Cyprus are:
