Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility

Summary




As one of the world’s pre-eminent anti-corruption organizations, UNISHKA must be a model for DEIA, where all employees are treated with dignity and respect. We are at our best when drawing upon all parts of society, and our greatest accomplishments are achieved when diverse perspectives are brought to bear to overcome our greatest challenges.

Therefore, to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility at UNISHKA, we are developing a DEIA Strategic Plan, including a framework to address workplace harassment and a data-driven approach to increase transparency and accountability.
