Objective: The project fights discrimination and the lack of diversity at workplaces in private and public settings in Slovakia. Both issues are of high occurrence and have severe negative impacts on the overall enjoyment of human rights. The project focuses on building technical capacities of various employers in the field of diversity management. To support all employers in promoting diversity at their respective workplace, the project creates a tool to measure the diversity – Diversity Index (DI). To create DI reflecting needs of society, the project brings together businesses and academia. It also fosters mutual learning and cooperation between equality bodies, diversity charters and other stakeholders to boost the exchange of good practices and promoting the culture of equality and rights on the EU level. Additionally, project includes a series of awareness raising activities promoting nondiscrimination and diversity at workplace targeting groups most endangered by the discrimination and social exclusion, e.g. Roma, women, persons with disabilities, LGBTI. As a part of the project, there are being organized 15 events building capacities, fostering cooperation and exchange of mutual practices; 4 awareness raising events. It also creates 1 educational program on diversity management and non-discrimination; 1 national DI (incl. app and methodology) and 1 communication campaign. Approx. 100 000 – 125 000 people (incl. vulnerable groups) together with 250 – 300 key Slovak and EU stakeholders – i.e. diversity charters, equality bodies, public authorities, Civil Society Organisations, universities, research institutes, businesses and their associations will benefit from the project. The project will result in increasing the number of the Slovak Diversity Charter members by at least 50% as well as in strengthening existing and building new partnerships between stakeholders on national and the EU level. Last but not least, it will visibly contribute towards the more inclusive society and work environment in Slovakia.
