Ludovic Gaudé: We are all born equal, however, our starting points are not the same. We benefit greatly from being born mentally and physically healthy and our lives are much easier when we grow up in a safe and loving environment and have the opportunity to get good education, explore our creativity and grow professionally.
My perspective is that of a professional responsible for protecting equality and diversity in a workplace: proper anti-discrimination policies within organizations such as companies and institutions are vital. Our Western position on social equality and diversity is rather well-established and shared across the European Union and on the other side of the Atlantic. Yet, from a broader perspective, there’s still a lot to be done.
