ABOUT GENERATION 2.0 RED

Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity is a nonprofit organisation consisted of people with different origins who work together to promote equal participation in a diverse society, through the empowerment of communities.

We combine action and research, aiming to promote human rights, equality and diversity, fight racism, xenophobia and discrimination in general. As an organization, we have over 10 years of experience in social action, sociological & legal research, project management and cultural events. We participate and cooperate with the largest human rights networks in Greece and Europe, claiming the rights of socially vulnerable groups, regardless of their origin, nationality, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

With one of our goals being the inclusion of migrants and refugees into the Greek society and the labor market, we have been creating for the last couple of years a network of private sector actors, the Diversity in the Workplace Network, whose participant companies and organisations actively support equal opportunities at work and combat discrimination. For that reason, we are currently seeking a dynamic and self-motivated Private Sector Partnerships Officer to contribute to the vision of an equal access to labor market for all.
