The ECA is an
equal opportunities employer. The principle of equal opportunities is enshrined in the legislation underpinning the work of the EU, notably in Article 1d of the Staff Regulations, which prohibits discrimination on any grounds (sex, race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age, sexual orientation, etc.). Discrimination of any kind is forbidden by our Ethical Guidelines.
We have a
diversity and inclusion policy aimed at creating a diverse working environment and an inclusive culture in which everyone feels valued and able to achieve their full potential.
This diversity and inclusion policy is an important part of the ECA’s strategic goals. It builds on the results of past action plans to pave the way towards a more diverse, more flexible and, at the same time, more equitable workplace where everyone’s talent has the best opportunity to flourish. Leaders have a key role in making this happen; through our commitment, we can set an example for the rest of the organisation. Therefore, it is our task to make the benefits of a diverse and inclusive culture apparent to all.
