Bulgarian Diversity Charter Expands Membership with NGOs and Universities

The Bulgarian Diversity Charter has seen a remarkable expansion in 2024, welcoming a diverse array of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and universities committed to fostering diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI). This growth marks a significant step forward in the collective efforts to promote an inclusive culture across various sectors in Bulgaria.

NGOs and educational institutions play a pivotal role in fostering inclusive environments and driving societal change. Their expertise in community engagement, research, and advocacy complements the efforts of businesses to create more equitable workplaces. By joining the Bulgarian Diversity Charter, these organizations are poised to work closely with the private sector, sharing resources, knowledge, and best practices. This cooperation is crucial for achieving successful DEI outcomes, as it ensures a comprehensive approach that addresses the needs of all stakeholders.
