LGBTI – Second Annual Report


Today, on the International Day for Zero Discrimination, Commissioner Věra Jourová presented the second annual report on the list of Actions to advance Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Equality to the High Level Group on Non-Discrimination, Equality and Diversity.  She said: “We have to continue protecting the rights of more vulnerable groups in society: 47% of LGBTI people have report being discriminated or harassed.” Commissioner Jourová also unveiled a new set of 17 EU-funded projects in 21 EU member states, which will, amongst others, support the Baltic and the Czech pride, anti-bullying campaigns in Greek schools, online tools to prevent hate speech in Italy. Regarding its staff, the European Commission adopted last year a new Human Resources diversity strategy with specific actions for LGTBI staff.
