EURO Equality, Diversity and Inclusion statement

The Association of the European Operational Research Societies (EURO) is committed to upholding practices that support equality, diversity and inclusion among our membership, our Executive committee, our Council, working parties and committees, as well as non-member contributors to our activity.

Operational Research is pluralist by its nature, drawing on different disciplines, perspectives, methodologies and experiences in order to provide holistic solutions to a wide range of problems in society. Our academic endeavour is inclusive, valuing difference, and therefore our community should reflect the rich diversity of people.

Our intention is to foster a community of societies free of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination, promoting dignity and respect for all, and where individual differences are recognised and valued.

Equality, diversity and inclusion objectives

The Association of the European Operational Research Societies commits to:

  • Promote good practice in equality, diversity and inclusion, to its member Societies.
  • Create an environment in which individual differences are valued and people feel safe, supported and able to do their best.
  • Endeavour to compose committees, working parties, panels, speakers or juries that are representative of our diverse community and promote greater inclusion and equity of opportunity.
  • Seek to address inequalities in the OR community through proactive support of underrepresented groups.
  • Require members of the community to treat everyone with dignity and respect.
  • Review all our practices and procedures regularly, so that fairness is maintained at all times and ensure our Policy is continually promoted.

In order to deliver these commitments we will keep track of relevant diversity data arising from our activities identifying actions to improve diversity and inclusion where needed.

Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion will be drawn to the attention of our member societies and to members of the public, who may view it on our website.
