Welcome to the Annual Award for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Project: Celebrating Nordic approach and Innovation!
At the Nordic Chamber of Commerce in the CR, we believe that Nordic values and specifically diversity and inclusion are not just buzzwords, but fundamental values that drive positive change and foster innovation. We are excited to announce our Annual Award for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Projects, a platform that celebrates and supports companies that are actively working on projects related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
In today's rapidly evolving world, businesses have the power to shape and influence society. We recognize the importance of embracing diversity in all its forms, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, and more. This competition aims to highlight and reward companies that are committed to making a meaningful impact through their projects that directly support diversity, equity, equal opportunities, and inclusion in various functional forms and combinations.
Whether you have a project ready to take off, one that is still in progress, or just recently finished, we invite you to participate and showcase your innovative initiatives. This competition serves as an opportunity to not only gain recognition for your efforts but also connect with like-minded organizations, share best practices, and collectively drive change on a larger scale.

1. Gain Recognition: Showcase your company's commitment to diversity and inclusion to a wide audience, including potential customers, investors, and partners.
2. Foster Innovation: Encourage creativity and forward-thinking by sharing your unique projects and ideas with other participants, ultimately driving innovation in the realm of diversity and inclusion.

5. Make a Difference: Your project has the potential to inspire others, serving as a catalyst for positive change within your organization and beyond, creating a more inclusive and equitable world.
We welcome projects from companies of all sizes and industries. Whether you are working on a diversity recruitment program, implementing inclusive workplace policies, developing educational initiatives, or driving company cultural change within your organization, we encourage you to submit your project for consideration. Projects focused on working with the communities outside the company or raising public awareness or performing activities with/for various target groups of society, are welcomed as well.
