Expert advisor within 
corporate social responsibility (CSR)
and non-discrimination (EQUALITY).


Corporate social responsibility is about companies and organizations taking ownership for their impact on society. CSR is about their contribution to sustainable social, environmental and economic development. To create shared value a strategic approach to CSR is essential. 


Respect for human rights is a precondition to sustainable societies. How minorities including ethnic minorities and individuals with disabilities are treated says a lot about a community – whether small or large. Anti-discrimination and equality law principles are important elements of modern democracies.
