Real debate is found in diversity

About Us

“IT’S A MALE DOMINATED FIELD”

There are many excuses for a lack of diverse speakers. But speaking events are not a passive reflection of status quo, they are an arena for change. We started this campaign from a growing frustration with the persistent lack of diversity of speakers at events in Brussels, the heart of the European Union. All-male panels [manels] especially, but also diversity of age, colour and ability. As a window to Europe, a political centre full of people shaping our common European future, what message does uniformity send? Our argument is simple: We need better, more diverse debates that empower and inspire the next generation of leaders. Only then can we achieve an inclusive, sustainable and prosperous Europe.
