This call focuses on supporting activities for racial or ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, older/younger people, religious minorities and LGBTI people, and it is structured on the following priority areas:

- Diversity management in the public and private sector: identification of existing practices, measurement of diversity management benefits, and awareness-raising;
- Roma: activities aiming to raise awareness and combat harmful stereotypes of Roma and supporting thereby their integration into mainstream society;
- To raise awareness about intergenerational solidarity and non-discrimination on the basis of age (in particular of young people).
The main activities of this project will be the identification of existing practices, measurement of diversity management benefits, and awareness-raising among the public and private sector.
