Iris Group - Managing Diversity was founded in Tbilisi in 2010 as a non-profit and non-governmental organization. The activities of Iris Group were mainly focused on the Caucasian region (Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan). But since 2012 Iris group started to implement activities in Russia and Turkey (North-East Anatolia) as well as in Europe.
We strive to support young people to figure out their potential, use the strength of diversity and contribute to the development of their society by active participation. Iris Group actively works with ethnic minorities and strengthens them in being full-fledged members of the society. Iris Group organizes activities which provide a comfortable space for young people, also representatives of ethnic minorities and IDPs, to come closer to other society members, connect and start cooperation.
Iris Group already has gained a strong network of partners and alumni in the regions mentioned above. The staff of the organization provides international expertise in Project Management, Mentoring, non-formal education and development and implementation of Educational Programs in the field of active citizenship. The organization is experienced in providing and conducting national, regional and international trainings and workshops related to the topics.
