Diversity dimensions

Click on one of the hedlines and get more information about the various diversity dimensions. 

Age is a dimension that affects us all, because our company and our teams are made up of people of different ages and generations who need to work together as effectively, creatively and dynamically as possible.

Nationality refers to a person's official citizenship and is therefore independent of ethnicity, which refers to a person's identity-based ancestry, including factors such as language, culture, customs and more. BIPoC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) is a political self-designation. It describes a common experience of racially discriminated people.

Gender describes a person's physical characteristics and gender identity. It goes beyond the binary categories of man and woman and includes non-binary, transgender, intersex and agender people.

People have different cognitive and physical abilities. These different conditions have an impact on our daily lives and work. This dimension refers to physical and mental conditions (congenital, chronic or acute) that can affect our performance in a non-inclusive environment. Examples include: limited mobility or cognition, neurodivergence (e.g. autism, ADHD, ...), physical/mental illness, introversion/extraversion and many more.

In addition to Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism, this dimension includes all spiritual beliefs as well as atheism and agnosticism. All forms of belief have an influence on the reality of a person's life or their social position.

LGBTQIA+ is the abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual. The + leaves room for other visible or invisible identities, orientations and allies. This dimension is therefore about sexual orientation and gender identity.

Social background refers to the socio-cultural and economic heritage that every person brings with them through birth and socialization. This includes factors such as a person's wealth or income as well as their level of education or that of their family.
