The non-profit association Charta der Vielfalt e. V. was founded on the 10th of September in 2010 and began working in March 2011. It designs the activities of the Charta der Vielfalt company initiative and assumes financial responsibility. The members of the association are almost exclusively large companies. This will ensure the Charta der Vielfalt is positioned more strongly in the business world, returning to its origin as a company initiative.
The association is committed to embedding diversity in the economy and society. It is an agenda setter for diversity management in Germany and in so doing it aims particularly to
- win more companies and organisations to commit themselves to the principles of the Charta der Vielfalt
- inform about diversity management as an instrument for developing a respectful and open organisational culture,
- support the existing signatories in learning from each other and exchanging experience about the aims of the association,
- support the existing signatories in implementing diversity management.
