Putting People First
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.
CEPS aims to promote diversity and inclusion throughout its main work pillars of human resources (hiring and promotion), research and analysis, publications and outreach, communication and events, and training.
Secure equal opportunities and fair and equal treatment for every single person who works at CEPS, regardless of gender, gender identity, age, racial and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, religious or political beliefs, education, physical and mental ability, or other aspects of one’s identity.
Encourage a more systematic and inclusive approach within CEPS research and publications
