Diversity Activities

At AmCham Germany, we stand proudly alongside our member companies in championing diversity and inclusion. Internally, we have established a dedicated Diversity Taskforce to consolidate efforts and initiatives aimed at promoting diversity across all aspects of our organization (see staff contacts below). Externally, our member companies are leading the way in promoting diversity and inclusion through innovative initiatives.

Like many of our member companies, AmCham Germany signed the Diversity Charter (Charta der Vielfalt) in 2015 to promote the recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity into our business community. AmCham Germany is also a signatory of the EMPOWER HER initiative, a partnership between the U.S. Department of Commerce and the AmChams in Europe (ACE) network.

We've initiated projects like the NextGen program to empower diverse, future transatlantic leaders. Our commitment to gender equality is evident through initiatives like the Female Founders Award and Female Leaders' Platform, celebrating women's economic empowerment and entrepreneurship.
