The Charter of Diversity is a business initiative for the promotion of diversity in companies and institutions. On 1st February 2011, Dr. Schlaefke – Sprache, Kommunikation und Training GmbH joined the Charter of Diversity with Federal Minister Prof. Maria Bömer and the Hessen Minister of Justice, Joerg Uwe Hahn, as co-signees.
The initiative wants to promote the acknowledgement, appraisal and incorporation of diversity in the business culture in Germany. Organizations should create a working environment which is free of prejudice. All co-workers should experience appraisal regardless of sex, nationality, ethnic heritage, religion or world view, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity (source: www.charta-der-vielfalt.de).
