(4 June 2018) Over 500 local and regional representatives and experts from 40 different countries came to Bilbao this week to address equality, diversity and inclusion under the banner of ‘differences unite us!’
The conference conclusions call for a European approach to meeting the challenges – see the conference’s 17 proposals. Much of the conference was devoted to sharing local experiences, good practices and strategies. EPSU participated in the conference workshop dedicated to the role of local and regional governments as employers. Here we discussed the results of the EU social dialogue committee for local and regional government, with a focus on recently adopted guidelines on gender equality action plans and on migration and strengthening non-discrimnation. These guidelines are an important contribution by social partners to building a joint European response to these issues.
