CEPS Sustainable Diversity Goals

Launched in September 2020, with support from the Open Society Foundation, the CEPS Sustainable Diversity Goals (CEPS SDGs) aim to improve and celebrate diversity at CEPS and in our research work.

From events organisation to research methodology and HR policies, the CEPS SDGs offer a framework to promote positive change. Through this initiative, CEPS is also fostering a large network of other think tanks, research and policy institutions, civil society and the private sector to exchange ideas and best practices on working towards an inclusive and diverse workplace. 

Our commitment to help promote equality and diversity in all policy events.

Our policy to secure equal opportunities and fair and equal treatment for every single person
who works at CEPS.

A Parity Pledge for gender-balanced events
With this pledge, we want to make a strong commitment to gender equality and set ambitious targets to help promote equality and diversity in all policy events. We commit to taking an active role in transforming Brussels’ policy landscape to make women’s voices heard and female experts more visible. By giving a platform to women working in all fields of policymaking, we aim to inspire younger generations to pursue careers in all fields of research and encourage more women to become leaders.
At CEPS, we pledge:
To achieve 50-50 gender balance in panels for all of our events.
To ensure that the event time and format do not create unintentional barriers to women’s participation.
To encourage staff to continuously share their knowledge of female experts in different fields to increase the pool of women that could be invited to our own events.
To systematically track gender representation at all our events to achieve our gender parity goals and identify topic areas requiring more effort to achieve gender balance.
