Diversity can be taken up by many people and applied in numerous ways

  • Politics
  • Education
  • The Media
  • NGOs
  • The Corporate World
  • The Academic World

The aim of Diversity is to enable your organisation or institution to realise its mission in a more effective and sustainable manner than would be possible without Diversity.

To lighten your workload, we have prepared a variety of materials for you to use. You can download these documents via our services and resources section.

State support for a diverse culture and society. For example through:

  • image campaigns
  • immigration laws
  • state-sponsored programmes
  • anti-discrimination and hate-crime laws
  • tax laws that treat all people equally fair
  • green card regulations and naturalisation laws that consciously foster diversity

Spreading knowledge and Diversity competencies. For example through the

  • development of curricula with multi-cultural content
  • elimination of gender specific educational methodologies
  • provision of cross-cultural learning experiences

  • in all related issues: part-time work models, gender mainstreaming, migration, work with people with disabilities, the ageing of society
