Diversity and equality at work in public administrations in the EU has been a substantial focus point and a sound area for strengthened cooperation between the European Public Administration Network (EUPAN) and the Trade Unions' National and European Administration Delegation (TUNED) since the adoption of a joint statement under the UK Presidency of the EU in December 2005.
Recognising that diversity and equality provide equal benefits for the administrations and the employees in terms of increasing modernisation efforts and improving public services, EUPAN and TUNED are committed to working jointly to further this agenda.
On this basis, the State Employer's Authority, The Danish Ministry of Finance, will host a conference on “Diversity through Equality in Public Administrations in
Europe” in Copenhagen in October 2007. The conference is organised in close cooperation with EUPAN and TUNED and is supported by the Danish Department of Gender Equality.
The aim of the conference is to initiate and further enhance strategic discussions on future challenges to diversity and equal opportunities in Europe. It is also to inspire and motivate the work on the diversity and equality agenda by exchanging experiences and presenting good practices. Additionally, the conference seeks to highlight the importance of social dialogue at EU and national levels to achieve equality and diversity. It is an important contribution to a strengthened European informal social dialogue between EUPAN and TUNED.
As part of the joint work to prepare the conference, national cases and good practices
on diversity and equality initiatives have been collected from European public
administrations and are now presented in this publication.
Thanks to all contributors who have wanted to share their valuable experiences, this
publication will serve as an excellent source of inspiration and motivation for the
ongoing efforts to improve diversity and equality in the public administrations in the
