German Companies Sign Up Against Discrimination at Work

In Germany and other countries across Europe, companies are signing "Diversity Charters" to show their commitment to promote open-minded, inclusive work environments. For engineer Ljiljana Stamenkovic born in former Yugoslavia, this has meant new opportunities to work and help other women like her, at a women's computer centre in Berlin. According to the ILO's Global Report on Discrimination, migrant workers like Ljiljana are at a higher risk for discrimination when competing for jobs especially in times of economic and social crisis.
