    Labour Market Observatory conference
    Conference - Berlin, Germany

    This conference looked at how diversity can be recognised, respected and valued. Practical examples from across the EU showed how diverse workplaces could be beneficial for all: businesses, employees and society in general. The event also examined the question of the intra-EU mobility of workers and their integration in host Member States. Debates concretely contributed to the SOC/495 opinion on "Supporting the migration of young job seekers" and synergies were created with members of the study group.
