The European Banking Authority (EBA) adopted the European Union Agencies network charter on diversity and inclusion thus reinforcing its commitment to take concrete actions to promote equal treatment of and opportunities for its staff.
The EBA is fully committed to taking a proactive approach to diversity and inclusion. Fair and equal opportunities as well as the prevention of discrimination among staff are at the core of our working culture. In particular, action carried out since 2021 has allowed the EBA to obtain significant results in the area of gender equality where it rebalanced the gender composition of its entire management team.
The EBA also carries out important policy and regulatory work to reinforce the principles in European Legislation that require credit institutions and investment firms to consider diversity and ensure equality among members of their management bodies.
To transparently report on how principles of diversity and inclusion are implemented in the EBA’s internal organisation and to present the agency’s policy work in this area, the Authority has also published a new webpage.
