JCI Europe established a taskforce on Equality and Diversity in the beginning of 2019.
The purpose of the taskforce is for JCI Europe to be a leading organization when it comes to equality and diversity. We want the atmosphere to be welcoming, inclusive and safe for everyone. We want to correct the gender bias, not only within elected and appointed positions but also in our culture.
The taskforce works on producing suggestions, ideas, tools and opening up discussions on this topic. Local and National Organizations are welcome to utilize those tools and implement them in their society. We have a monthly Skype call to support members with such implementation. We have also launched a 12 month empowerment program with online webinars on different subjects related to equality, diversity, empowerment and social change. This program is open to anyone interested, inside and outside of JCI, and is free of charge. The taskforce is also working on implementing safe spaces at international JCI events in Europe and producing a plan of action on violence, bullying and sexual harassment.
The taskforce is comprised of JCI members from several National Organizations around Europe who are passionate about establishing and increasing equality and diversity within JCI on a European level.
