DEI4SME is an Erasmus+ project co-funded by the European Eunion, uniting six partner organisations for the mission to enable DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) in business and business education.

The project’s team is committed to strengthening DEI in Education and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) management through extensive collaboration with various stakeholders. The project’s vision goes beyond talk, as it sets out to create an effective digital tool and a learning ecosystem around it to enable social responsibility planning, execution, and governance.

By equipping business graduates with the skills and resources to drive change towards DEI, even in resource-challenged SMEs, the project aims to drive actionable implementation of social sustainability in business with a positive impact on business and a wider society.  We aim to create a digital tool for planning, implementing and monitoring corporate social responsibility and educational materials so that higher institution graduates can lead the change towards diversity, equity, and inclusion, even in small and medium enterprises that have little extra resources. This will lay the foundation for creating the EU’s joint standard for monitoring social responsibility and solving a number of social challenges in the union.
