Registration is simple! You can easily register for on-site or online participation through the digital application form available on the event website.

This event will unite hundreds of representatives from EU institutions, as well as national and local levels, businesses, enterprises, civil society, non-governmental organizations, experts, activists, and stakeholders dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). High-ranking EU officials will attend the occasion, with esteemed figures such as Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, and Helena Dalli, Commissioner for Equality.

The Programme features insightful panel discussions on key topics such as “What’s next for diversity, inclusion and belonging” and much more on the impact of diversity and inclusion at work and the future of inclusion policies.

Bulgarian Diversity Charter at the event

The Bulgarian Diversity Charter, as a member of the EU Platform of Diversity Charters, traditionally attends the Commission’s annual event on Diversity. In the past two years, the representatives of the Charter have been accompanied by the winners of the Diversity@Work award granted within the annual Responsible Business Awards organised by the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum (BBLF). 

The event welcomes participation from all individuals interested in engaging in the EU debate on overcoming challenges such as an ageing population, transitioning to more sustainable ways of working, digitalisation, and the inclusive use of AI.
