Carl Duisberg Centren became a signatory and supporter of the "Charta der Vielfalt" (Diversity Charter) in August 2016. The initiative aims to promote the recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity into Germany's business culture. Organizations are to create a working environment free of prejudice. The Charta was founded by companies like Daimler, Siemens, BMW, Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Telekom and now has over 2.500 members. The principles upheld by the Charta are consistent with Carl Duisberg Centren's core values. As a signatory of the Diversity Charta, we aim to set an example by dealing with diversity constructively and promoting a non-discriminatory working environment in our organization.
