Diversity Policy

CERN's Diversity Policy is based on three basic principles:

• Appreciating differences – Leveraging the added value that comes from bringing together 
people of different nationalities, genders, professions, ages, as well as their individual  differences, and enabling them all to contribute to their full potential.  

• Fostering equality – Optimising talent and performance through a leadership culture that 
focuses on fair treatment and rules out all forms of discrimination and bias.  

• Promoting collaboration – Creating an inclusive work environment based on mutual respect and exchange, in order to ensure that no one is isolated and that everyone feels encouraged to contribute and participate actively in the Organization.
