To embed diversity even further into our company culture, to cherish multiple perspectives in our daily work and to embrace the enormous potential that diversity offers in all our projects, we are organizing a new series of LGBT*IQ awareness sessions (thanks PROUT AT WORK-Foundation for the great support!). The virtual workshops are open to all our employees and two events have already taken place. Over 650 colleagues shed a light on today’s situation of LGBT*IQ people at work, consequently reflecting on unconscious bias and stigma. Participants were equipped with a set of easy steps how everyone can contribute to a respectful environment and culture, especially for LGBT*IQ. The session was wrapped up with a question & answer round, where practical situations could be discussed in detail. Two other workshops are planned for the second half of the year. We are already looking forward!
