Bilbao 2018: Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
From 11 to 13 June in Bilbao the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) are hosting the Conference on Equality Diversity and Inclusion. Together with the Association of Basque Municipalities (EUDEL), the CEMR are working to make this forum a platform for sharing experiences and developing ideas on the transformation of the social panorama.
The three days of the conference will be dedicated to developing a community of practice on equality, diversity and inclusion local policies from a new “intersectional” approach. Local governments are embracing the challenge of constructing settings that are inclusive and guarantee rights for the diversity of identities that made up our citizenry. Those identities are underpinned by the intersection of different cultural, social and biological categories, including gender, language, sexual orientation, age, disability, ethnics.
