Charta of Diversity

The Wetteraukreis signed the Charter of Diversity in October 2011.

The Charter of Diversity is a corporate initiative to promote diversity in companies and institutions. Federal Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel is its patron. The Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Aydan Özoğuz, supports the initiative.

The initiative aims to promote the recognition, appreciation and inclusion of diversity in corporate culture in Germany. Organizations should create a working environment that is free of prejudice. All employees should be appreciated - regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or world view, disability, age, or sexual orientation or identity.
