“Diversity” is a concept that has recently gained importance and presents a central issue for our society as it includes economic, social and cultural considerations.
Diversity means fighting against discrimination in a positive way. This concerns any discrimination regarding age, disability, sexual orientation, racial or ethnic origin or different convictions (religious, political, philosophical,…). One of the essential elements of Diversity is the integration of everybody into the labour market, according to the principle of equal treatment.
