Fifth German Diversity Day: managers discuss diversity at work

The Diversity Charter is an independent economic initiative that boasts the participation of 2,600 companies and institutions in Germany. The Charter's goal is to create a work environment free of prejudice. All employees deserve respect and appreciation – regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity. Deutsche Telekom is a founding member of the initiative. As in past years, we participated in the fifth nationwide German Diversity Day in 2017. Together with 120 managers from partner companies from the Rhine-Ruhr network, we exchanged information during a meeting on topics such as "Working World 2030," "Unconscious Bias," "Cultural Skills," and "Flexible Working Hours" and discussed the interests of the LGBTI (= Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersexed) community.
