INTERESTED IN SAFEGUARDING OR DIVERSITY PLANNING?

We recently received support from two Belgium public agencies that promote equality: UNIA and IGVM. We keep in correspondence with them about our advancement and improvements in the areas of equity and non-discrimination. We are starting an intense process for developing our organizational culture with the support of external expertise.

Francesca Stuer, a safeguarding expert, will conduct an audit of our internal policies (such as Code of Conduct, Misconduct Procedure, and others). She will lead us through a six-month process, strengthening our safeguarding policies. The aim of this work is to ensure a safe and inclusive collaboration environment for everyone.

In parallel, and with the support of Actiris, the Brussels Regional Office for Employment, we are starting a process for developing a diversity plan. The objective of the plan is to define actions that ECOLISE will take in the coming two years for promoting inclusion and diversity, and fighting discrimination.

 

If you are interested in joining our culture-building working group, which will coordinate this work, contact . The minimum commitment for engagement will be to join a meeting once a month. For the development of the diversity plan we are particularly looking for people from the ECOLISE membership with some of the following profiles: Age -26 / +45; Origin from the Global South / BIPOC;  Physical disability; Non-binary gender, Low level of formal education. These categories are defined as disadvantaged in the Belgium labor market by Actiris.
