Barbara Rambousek discusses gender equality at EBRD event

 March 01, 2021

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), PwC and the EBRD co-hosted a virtual event about addressing the complex issue of diversity in organizations and making sure that the COVID-19 pandemic does not widen the inequality gap in the workplace.

Keeping diversity and inclusion focus at the centre

The event saw a packed agenda of industry leaders from companies like Adecco, Booking.com and Eurofound sharing their thoughts on gender diversity.

Following a lively discussion in the form of panels and key note speakers, Barbara Rambousek, EBRD Gender and Economic Inclusion Director, closed the event summarising the Bank's commitment to diversity and inclusion and offered further concluding remarks: "At the EBRD, we pro-actively support our clients to open up skills and jobs opportunities for people with disabilities, and to create inclusive transport and infrastructure solutions that are accessible to all," she said.

“We also help employers improve their HR policies and practices to offer opportunities to women. And we have advised governments in Serbia and North Macedonia on agile labour market policies that focus on protecting people and their livelihoods during the pandemic," she added.

“The COVID-19 crisis has particularly impacted women, young people, and those with disabilities. The road to recovery may be long, but the focus on diversity and inclusion has to remain at the centre.”
