In Germany and other countries across Europe, companies are signing 'diversity charters' to show their commitment to promote open-minded, inclusive work environments. For engineer Ljiljana Stamenkovic, born in former Yugoslavia, this has meant new opportunities to work and help other women like her at a women's computer center in Berlin. According to the ILO's (International Labour Organization) Global Report on Discrimination, migrant workers like Ljiljana are at a higher risk for discrimination when competing for jobs, especially in times of economic and social crisis.
