The Brussels Region is characterized by multiculturality and diversity. In order to improve the access of different target
groups to the job market and to better represent the Capital’s diversity in the workplace, the Brussels government has taken various
diversity initiatives. Actiris Inclusive is the main actor in charge of accompanying organizations in developing diversity plans.
A Diversity Plan is a set of measures and actions taken by a specific organization with the aim of increasing and valuing the
diversity of its personnel. When a diversity plan is carried out successfully, the organization receives the Diversity Label. In this
context, a collaboration between practitioners in charge of elaborating and evaluating diversity plans and academics with research
interests in diversity and inclusion is timely. Hence, we are collaborating with Actiris on a project aiming at better
understanding the diversity plans from a more psychological perspective.
