The Romanian Diversity Chamber of Commerce (RDCC) and the British Romanian Chamber of Commerce will host the premier Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Eastern Europe Conference. The half-day event will take place on 9 May 2023, at the InterContinental Athenee Palace Hotel in Bucharest and will connect senior diversity, equity and inclusion leaders from across the region to share best practices, insights and solutions for advancing ED&I in the workplace and beyond.
“This conference is a unique opportunity to learn from and network with some of the most influential and innovative ED&I champions in Eastern Europe. We have partnered with the British-Romanian Chamber of Commerce to showcase the positive impact of diversity and inclusion on business performance, innovation and social responsibility that British firms have benefitted from both in Romania and abroad. We expect one of the outcomes of the conference to be a list of actionable insights that attendees can immediately adapt and implement in their own workplaces,” Perry V. Zizzi, President of the RDCC and Managing Partner of Dentons Romania, said.
“The simple definition of the word diversity has clearly transformed over the last few years enabling a much clearer understanding and embracing of what diversity really means and its enormous value in society and business. We are both proud and delighted to be part of promoting this continuing message together with our friends in the Romanian Diversity Chamber of Commerce.” said Colin C. Lovering, Chairman of the British Romanian Chamber of Commerce.
