Charter of Diversity
The Charter of Diversity (Charta der Vielfalt) is an initiative to promote diversity in companies and institutions. It was launched in December 2006 and is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Minister of State Reem Alabali-Radovan.
The Thünen Institute has been one of the signatories of the Charter of Diversity since 2009.
The aim of the initiative is to promote the recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity in business culture in Germany. Organisations should create a working environment that is free of prejudice. All employees should be valued, regardless of age, ethnic origin and nationality, gender and gender identity, physical and mental abilities, religion and world view, sexual orientation and social origin.
The Thünen Institute commits itself to these goals. It keeps them in mind in its daily work and in all measures.
