The FRA participates in the Fourth Equality Summit held in Brussels on 15 and 16 November 2010. This Summit is an annual, high-level event focusing on equality. This year the event will concentrate on combating discrimination and promoting equality in employment.

The Summit will take stock of the policies that have been put in place to promote non-discrimination and diversity in the workplace. Tools and practices that have proved most efficient will be highlighted, and future courses of action will be identified.

Ms. Ilze Brands-Kehris, FRA Chairperson, will deliver a keynote speech on "The economic and financial crisis: a catalyst or an obstacle?" on Tuesday, 16 November. Kasia Jurczak, FRA Programme Manager, will highlight the results of the Agency's study on the FRA's project on the impact of the Racial Equality Directive.

The Equality Summit is co-organised by the Belgian Presidency and the European Commission.
