European Union Institutions Accused of Being Too White — Breitbart News
A European Commission report on staff diversity within European Union institutions has accused the EU of being too white and not having enough representation from minority communities.
The report has stated that while ethnic minorities make up at least 10 per cent of the population in the European Union, the number of ethnic minorities within EU institutions is far lower.
As a result, the European Commission has vowed to launch an investigation into the ethnic profiles of its own employees to set possible quotas for its recruitment policy, Le Figaro reports.
According to Le Figaro, the EU is looking to entice ethnic minority students into working for the European Union and states that human resources managers will undergo “unconscious bias” training.
The Commission has called on the European Parliament and the European Council to also consider promoting diversity within their staff, as well.

The EU is too white – and Brexit likely to make it worse, MEPs and staff say — The Guardian
The EU institutions are overwhelmingly white – and many predict Brexit will make the problem worse. All 28 European commissioners are white. Nearly all government ministers and leaders are white. Of the European parliament’s 751 MEPs, three are black, compared to the 22 there would be if the institution represented Europe’s black population.
It is impossible to say how many EU politicians and staff come from a black and minority ethnic background, because the statistics do not exist. Moreover, many countries oppose collecting data on ethnicity or race
