Diversity as opportunity – the Diversity Charter
The diversity of modern society, influenced by globalization and demographic change, is central in shaping Germany’s economic life. We can only have economic success if we recognize and make use of this diversity. This applies both to our staff and to the diverse needs of our customers and business partners. The diversity represented by our members of staff, with their different skills and talents, opens up opportunities for innovative, creative solutions. By implementing Germany’s Diversity Charter in our organization, our goal is to create a working environment that is free of prejudice. We want all of our members of staff to feel appreciated – regardless of their gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, worldview, disability, age, sexual orientation, or identity. Recognizing and tapping into these diverse sources of potential brings economic benefits for our organization. We are creating a climate of acceptance and mutual trust. This is having a positive impact on our reputation among business partners and consumers, both in Germany and in other countries around the world.
