National non-discrimination and diversity management seminars 

Between autumn 2007 and spring 2008, a series of national training
seminars were financed by the European Commission and carried out in all
EU Member States, Turkey, Norway and Iceland. 1100 participants from
NGOs and nearly 300 participants from trade unions were trained in
national non-discrimination seminars raising awareness and understanding
of national legislation and policy. More than 1000 companies and other
interested groups attended the diversity management seminars raising
awareness of the benefits companies can gain from managing diversity.
