Respectful and inclusive workplace
Since its foundation, Égalité has been combating discrimination affecting LGBTI + staff within the European institutions.
Égalité provides individual assistance to its members in case of harassment or discrimination.
Over the years, the legal requirements of non-discrimination have been strengthened in the EU staff regulations. This is necessary in order to provide adequate protection but is not enough.
The EU institutions should lead by example by establishing a truly inclusive work environment where LGBTI+ employees feel valued, can be fully themselves and realize their full potential. The institutions should implement best practices as illustrated in international rankings and adhere to international charters in this field.
Ensuring coherence between internal HR policies and the external action of the EU in the field of promotion of LGBTI rights is essential to the credibility of the EU institutions.
Égalité is in contact on these issues with Commissioners, HR directorates general, trade unions, staff Committees and the European Parliament Intergroup on LGBTI rights.
In case of harrasment or any other issues please do not hesitate to contact us.
