Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At ESAE, we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion because we believe these principles are essential and beneficial for society as a whole. To solidify our commitment, ESAE's Board of Directors approved a DEI charter on 9 December 2022, and appointed a Board Member responsible for DEI, Liesbeth Switten.

ESAE strongly believes that embracing and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion is essential in order to make Associations thrive. Beyond being more inclusive, organisations that apply DEI perform better, grow their reputation and have a stronger employer’s brand.

ESAE aims to assist Association leaders and executives, as well as associations themselves, in their efforts to be inclusive and lead by example, by:

  • promoting and practising inclusion.

  • providing assessment tools, template policies and training.

  • offering a discussion forum.


ESAE especially wants to provide a safe environment for sharing experiences and shaping opinions on DEI, in order to develop guiding principles that are relevant for the framework of Associations and their leaders and executives. In doing so, we advance ESAE’s mission while also providing added value to members and society.
