CBM adopts Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy

The Board of Directors at the Central Bank of Malta has adopted a policy to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion as an employer.

The Bank already has a number of policies in place to protect its employees from discrimination, which will be complemented by having a specific focus on equality, diversity and inclusion.

To ensure that the policy is effectively implemented, the Bank is setting up an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, composed of six employees, all of whom will be trained and certified by the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE) as ‘diversity officers’. 

The Bank will also be applying to the NCPE for an Equality Mark, a prestigious certification awarded to organisations that make gender equality one of their values.

The committee will prepare a report at the end of each year indicating the activities undertaken during the year and will present clear targets and a strategy for the following year.

The Bank is committed to promoting a culture that actively values differences and recognises that people from different backgrounds and experiences can bring valuable insights to the workplace and enhance the way they work. The Bank aims to be an inclusive employer, where diversity is valued, respected and built upon.

The policy promotes best practice and covers every form of discrimination, ranging from age and sexual orientation to race and religious or political beliefs. It also ensures that there is no discrimination with regards to caring responsibilities, part-time employment, membership or non-membership of a trade union.
