The new diversity advisers met at the first training in Viinistu

We announced a search for new diversity advisers at the end of August to prepare for next year’s Diverse Workplace label application round, which will be taking place for the third time. The competition was fierce – out of 28 strong candidates we selected six advisers who, together with our three previous consultants, can support organisations in developing a diversity plan in the spring of 2022.

The training of advisers combines two trainings, the first of which took place last week in Viinistu. The three-day event provided the overview of concepts, practices and principles of diversity and inclusion field. Other discussions covered topics such as legislation and personal experiences. The training was conducted by the experts of the Human Rights Center – Liina Rajaveer and Kelly Grossthal. In addition, Kristiina Lõhmus, who has been a promoter of diversity and inclusion in private sector, shared her experience. The next training for advisers will take place in November. That will focus on the documents and evaluation process requirements for the diversity label application and discuss the counselling process.

The new application round for the Diverse Workplace label will begin in February 2022. A total of 32 recognised organisations have been selected in the previous two rounds, including both private companies and public sector and non-governmental organisations. The label is issued by the Estonian Human Rights Centre in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Affairs.

It is important to protect everyone’s human rights, because it helps to keep stability and peace in the society. There are many challenges for protection of human rights in Estonia: intolerance has really come out of the closet. Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.
