German Diversity Day

Our society is diverse and so is our working world. The German Diversity Day is drawing attention with numerous actions - online and offline, for the workforce or for the public. The day of awareness brings the concept of diverse teams and Diversity Management aspects into the world of work. It takes place annually on the initiative of the Association Charta der Vielfalt e. V.


The institutions and employees of our network with more than 3,700 organizations show the flag for diversity nationwide with creative actions. The DDT21 is digitally supported by the hashtag #vielfaltverbindet.

The 9th GDD will take place on the 18th of May 2021
