Diversity management is one of the main themes of FIBS’s activities and services. We have been increasing the diversity competence of companies for more than 15 years through coaching and other events; from 2012 to 2018, we did this through a separate diversity network, but now it is a part of FIBS’s other activities.
FIBS is the representative of the EU Platform of Diversity Charters in Finland. As a result, our members receive the latest information on the diversity practices of the total of 24 European countries that are members of the platform. The many studies, webinars and projects produced by our international partner WBCSD are also available to our members.

With our comprehensive diversity services, you can easily increase the diversity competence of your whole company, stay up to date with the trends in the field and hear inspiring practical examples of other companies’ diversity solutions:
- Sign a Diversity Charter: FIBS’s Diversity Charter is the company’s promise to develop diversity management and service practices. The Charter is also a tool: by applying its four principles, you can increase the competitiveness and profitability of your company by identifying new customer groups, among other things. The Charter can be signed by the managing director or other member of the management team responsible for diversity management. You can find all the companies and organizations that are signatories to FIBS’s Diversity Charter on this page under the category of ”Monimuotoisuussitoumuksen allekirjoittaneet”. FIBS members can download the Charter in English and in Finnish here (create you user ID here).
