EBRD Diversity Week helps embrace and celebrate differences

EBRD Diversity Week helps embrace and celebrate differences

 October 03, 2019

The EBRD seeks to ensure that everyone is treated with respect, has equal opportunities and feels valued. The rich mix of nationalities, cultures and opinions of more than 2,000 EBRD employees supports the bank's drive for greater collaboration, innovation, better decision-making and strong relationships with everyone it works with.    

Aiming to sustain and build on this strength - focusing on gender balance, multiculturalism, flexible working, LGBT and disability awareness - EBRD hosts a Diversity Week.

An opportunity to experience different cultures

During Diversity Week, EBRD employees have the opportunity to step into refugees' shoes via a Virtual Reality experience, enjoy a taste of Asia, gain insight into the ways EBRD supports LGBTQI through the employee group 'Spectrum', and generally connect with the EBRD community of employees.

Diversity and inclusion is led from the top

EBRD's diversity and inclusion agenda is led from the very top, with the bank's Executive Committee and senior leadership championing and promoting equality and reviewing progress regularly.

In addition to Spectrum, EBRD has a number of other proactive employee networks, including Connect4Women, African-Caribbean, and Asian. Working hand in hand with the Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group, these networks increase awareness of all aspects of diversity through a calendar of events across EBRD's countries of operations.
