On March 13, 2023, in the wake of International Women’s Day, the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany, Holtzbrinck Berlin and the U.S. Embassy Berlin teamed up to offer a special virtual event with LaToya Rose, Senior Vice President, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Macmillan Publishers. We were delighted that Nicole Schlautmann, General Manager, Pfizer Austria, and Co-Chair of the Pfizer Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Council Europe, joined the discussion and brought in the European perspective.
Both experts shared objectives, strategies, and initiatives on how to create a more inclusive organization and their experiences with implementing DEI in policies and procedures. The conversation was moderated by Celia Parbey, Editor for ZEIT ONLINE and Editor-in-Chief of RosaMag, and included an Introduction by Izaak Martin, Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer, U.S. Embassy Berlin, as well as Closing Remarks by Aylin Tüzel, AmCham Germany Chapter Chair Berlin-Brandenburg.
In the United States, March is celebrated as Women's History Month, a time to honor the achievements and contributions of women throughout history and acknowledge the ongoing fight for gender equality. We would like to thank our cooperation partners U.S. Embassy Berlin and Holtzbrinck Berlin for such an insightful event!
