Equal opportunities, Diversity and Inclusion

Enhancing social acceptance, eliminating prejudice and promoting the benefits of diversity in our society are among the key objectives of the European Union.

The European Personnel Selection Office strives to offer equal opportunities and access to all candidates regardless of their race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a minority, birth, disability, age, sexual identity or any other characteristic.

EPSO’s selection procedures are designed to be clear, transparent and accessible to all candidates. The goal is to provide them with an equal opportunity to demonstrate their competencies and skills by identifying and removing blocking factors, possible biases and risks of discrimination.

EPSO is committed to attracting talent from diverse backgrounds. It strives to increase the diversity of the EU’s talent pool so that the EU civil service is representative of the diversity of the citizens it represents and serves.
