Diversity Day 2021

Date: 12. May 2021
Woohoo! Diversity Day is coming on 12th May!

The Human Rights Centre invites everyone to unite in celebrating all the things that make us different and bring us together. Diversity Day, always a joyous and eye opening occasion, is about paying attention to the importance and uniqueness of every individual in organisations, circles of friends, and society at large. Our differing experiences, points of view and knowledge complement each other and bring us together – diversity unites!

Diversity Day is a great way to share the joy arising from diversity with one another, to learn something new, and to exchange wonderful experiences – and anyone can celebrate it! You can invite an inspiring speaker, or encourage your employees to talk about their diversity, or play a board game, have a photo exhibition, and so much more! We would be glad to provide suggestions on the topic of experts, films, games and speakers – just write to: liina.rajaveer@humanrights.ee

This year the national minority cultural associations are ready to visit organisations virtually and Köömen, a social enterprise, is happy to teach people how to cook Arab dishes via Zoom.

Celebrate with us! Please register your Diversity Day activity here, mark yourself as attending the event on Facebook, and share your activities on social media, using the hashtags #mitmekesisus or #MitmekesisusePäev!

Diversity Day is organised by the Estonian Human Rights Centre in cooperation with the Diversity Charter network. Our Diversity day is a part of the European Diversity Month.

Since you are here...

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.

Estonian Human Rights Centre is the competent, accountable and impactful independent human rights organisation in Estonia. Your recurring or one-time donation helps to stand up for human rights everywhere: in courts, in the media, in schools, in the workplace, on the streets and in governmental venues.

Donating is easy, and you can use your credit card if donating from abroad.
