Romanian Diversity Chamber Of Commerce
ED&I is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth
RDCC aims to work - together with its members, partners and collaborators - towards greater diversity within workplaces, industries, and broader economy sector in Romania and to cultivate meaningful, positive change for our society with a focus on:
achieving a high level of public recognition, involvement and engagement in promoting diversity in business;
supporting and developing economic activity by and between local diverse businesses and international corporations;
fostering economic enfranchisement of disadvantaged groups by developing business skills, contacts and opportunities within the framework of diversity in partnership with like-minded organizations;
nurturing a society where disadvantaged groups have an equal place at the table and become an essential part of the engine that makes the Romanian economy run;
encouraging and promoting disadvantaged groups as potential customers – capitalize on their sheer number and collective purchasing power to make them attractive targets.
Organizations that simply look at diversity as a trend are missing out on the depth and value that a truly diverse and inclusive organization brings. Romanian Diversity Chamber of Commerce is a space that has built along the way an environment that paves the way for the future of diversity and inclusion in Romania. Our approach is to enable businesses to take a more in-depth look at the core of their business operation and growth and see how a ED&I culture can make a difference. But if they get diversity and inclusion strategies wrong, our future millennial workforce will leave.
RDCC is a non-profit organization that activates in the fields of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion by providing different types of services and activities for its members and partners, for the business communities interested in achieving a level of ED&I inside their organisations, for people belonging to minority groups and for society at large.

Gender equality is not only a matter of legal rights, but also of economic opportunities. As part of itțs mission, the Romanian ChamberOfCommerce promotes womențs leaderhip and business opportunities for local companies owned or managed by women. We expect the new task force to work with other groups to establish a set of agreed actions to help meet these priorities.

The first step to wards diversity and inclusion is to counter discrimination. But ensuring diversity and inclusion is more than non-discrimination. It is about mobilising everyonețs potential. As leaders and managers, we have a particular responsibility to gather this potential and to engage ourselves beyond familiar routines. Diversity and inclusion stimulates creativity and innovation. This ultimately benefits our operations and activities - proficiently and financially.
