Charter of Diversity
The Charter of Diversity (german: Charta der Vielfalt) is a corporate initiative to promote diversity in companies and institutions. Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel is the initiative’s patron. The Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Aydan Özoguz, supports the initiative.
The initiative aims to promote the recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity into Germany’s business culture. Organisations are to create a working environment free of prejudice. All employees should be valued – regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or worldview, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity.
On 26th of August 2014, the Simulator Centre KSG|GfS was confirmed in the list of signatories of the Charter of Diversity. We are definitely convinced that practicing and appreciating diversity will have a positive impact on German society. We welcome and support this business initiative!
The diversity of modern society, influenced by globalisation and reflected in demographic changes, is affecting economic life in Germany. We have come to realize that we can only be successful economically if we acknowledge and leverage the existing diversity. That includes the diversity of our workforces and the diverse needs of our customers and other business partners. Diverse competencies and talents on the part of staff open new opportunities for innovative and creative solutions.
The implementation of the Charter of Diversity in our organisation aims at creating a work environment free of prejudice. We deeply respect all colleagues irrespective of gender, nationality, ethnic background, religion or worldview, disability, age, and sexual preference and identity. Appreciation and promotion of these diverse potentials produce economic benefits for our organisation.
We foster an atmosphere of acceptance and mutual trust. This will have positive effects on our reputation with our partners and customers in Germany and in other countries in the world.
