Stone Soup Consulting has signed the Portuguese Diversity Charter.  This charter is composed by multiple signing organisations and has diversity as its principle, understood as the acknowledgement, respect and appreciation of the difference(s) between people, including particularly the differences related to gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, faith and beliefs, country of origin, culture, language, nationality, birthplace, ancestry, age, political, ideological or social orientation, marital status, family structure economic situation, health, disability, personal style and training.

Recognizing diversity in an organisation enables innovation. It can have a positive impact in attracting, retaining, and promoting diverse sets of skills and it represents an added value by making the organisation itself a mirror of the society in which it operates. Valuing the characteristics, skills and talents of each person promotes equal treatment and opportunities, fights prejudice and discrimination, and fosters a culture of inclusion based on respect for individual human beings.

A culture of Diversity contributes towards personal and professional development, efficiency and competitiveness of an organization, as well as towards the improvement of social and economic standards. The signatory organisations of this Charter commit to diversity as an ethical imperative, as a basic principle guiding all its activities, both internally and externally, as part of its core values and its institutional identity.
