Without reliable disaggregated equality data, it is hard to measure inequalities and design policies accordingly, or even to prove to lawmakers and employers that differential treatment exists and needs to be addressed. The symposium aimed to address this issue and strengthen political will for equality data collection among policy and decision makers.
Some of the main conclusions of the symposium include:
There is little debate on ethnic data in the EU
There are numerous misconceptions about data on ethnic origin
Ethnic data are not officially and comprehensively collected for the purpose of combating discrimination in the EU
Data are collected outside of international standards and safeguards
Are you an organisation working on anti-racism and anti-discrimination in a European country?
ENAR’s Equal@work Platform brings together businesses, social partners, NGOs, public authorities and academics committed to diversity and inclusion, to find solutions for the participation of ethnic minorities in the labour market.
