10 year anniversary of the Germany Diversity Charter

The German Diversity Charter was set up 10 years ago at a time when diversity was hardly a topic in many Germany companies. The intention of the initiators was to change this state of affairs. Ten years later, they have conducted a unique study of diversity within German companies and organisations.

This study represents the first ever comparison between a cross-section of companies in Germany and those companies and organisations that are actively involved in diversity management and that have signed up to the Diversity Charter. The study allows basic conclusions to be drawn about the way companies and organisations approach diversity management.

The responses provided by the respondents reveal a typology with four different approaches and attitudes to diversity management: sceptics, pragmatists, communicators and strategists. This typology can serve as guidance for evaluating individual organisations and offers companies the chance to reflect on their own positioning.
