Diversity call backed by European University of Canary Islands
The European University of the Canary Islands has joined the Charter of Diversity through signing at a public event held at the CEOE (Madrid).
Promoted in Spain by the Diversity Foundation, the Charter of Diversity – which already has more than 800 signatories – is a letter that contains a series of principles with which those organisations wish to promote equality, respect to the right of the inclusion of all people in the work environment and in society in general regardless of their diverse profiles; and recognition of the benefits of cultural, demographic and social diversity.
“Through this signing, at the European University, we take a further step in integrating diversity into our institution, a drive towards all those initiatives aimed at promoting equal opportunities and anti-discrimination,” says the director of Communication and Institutional Relations of the European University, José María Palomares.
With this signature, the University also promises to promote conciliation through a balance between work, family and leisure time; recognise the diversity of customers, extend and communicate commitment to employees, suppliers and social partners; and to reflect in its annual report activities to support non-discrimination, as well as the results obtained from the implementation of diversity policies.
The Universidad Europea de Canarias is the first private higher education institution in the Canary Islands. At the moment it counts on degrees adapted to the business world in the areas of social sciences and communication, architecture and engineering and health sciences, that contribute value and endow their students with an international character.
