Corporate Responsibility

Celebrating Diversity – The 5th German Diversity Day

"Diversity is by no means just about gender and age," emphasizes AmCham Germany's Diversity Champion, Bianca Bourbon (General Manager of Coca-Cola Germany). "But those traditional aspects are a good starting point. It is more and more about inclusion, which is the ability of organizations to use the different thinking in order to yield better results." Companies welcoming such a diverse and international workforce profit in terms of innovation and inspiration.

In transatlantic business, corporate responsibility has a long tradition. Diversity and inclusion efforts contribute to the business success of companies today. AmCham Germany has supported these efforts and has also signed the "Charta der Vielfalt" - an initiative started and driven by companies and business leaders under the patronage of Chancellor Merkel.
