Diversity Charter

Our contribution to the SDGs

The Diversity Charter is an independent business initiative that is supported by around500 companies and institutions in Germany. Its aim is to create a work environment in which diversity among employees, and their many different abilities and talents, is valued. Such an environment opens up opportunities for innovative and creative solutions. Deutsche Telekom is a founding member of the Diversity Charter association. In addition, a number of our national companies are also members of this initiative – including T-Systems ITC Iberia and Magyar Telekom in Hungary.

In the reporting year, we worked together with the Diversity Charter, the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (Donors’ Association for the Promotion of Humanities and Sciences in Germany), and representatives of other companies to further develop the Diversity Audit img, established in the higher education sector in 2013 under the name “Vielfalt gestalten” (Create diversity) to become the “Diversity Kompass” (Diversity Compass). The aim of this effort is to adapt the audit to the specific requirements and interests of companies. This will enable companies – including Deutsche Telekom – to use the audit in future to review and refine their own measures in the area of diversity. The Diversity Compass was rolled out as a pilot phase in January 2023 in Deutsche Telekom’s Germany operating segment img, among other units.
