Phenomenon Diversity

Diversity describes the reality that people are in many ways different – and in some ways similar. (diversity)

Attitude open-mindedness

Diversity embodies our attitude towards otherness and our awareness of the impact that being different has on our daily interactions. (valuing diversity)

Tool Diversity Management

The management of diversity encourages us to acknowledge both internally and in action the differences we see. Managing diversity also helps us - as individuals and companies - to use such differences in a way that will increase corporate success. (managing diversity)

Guiding principle Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity encourages the complete and consistent integration of differences into your company’s day-to-day business. The uniqueness of every stakeholder is highly valued in all areas of the company.

Core Dimensions

There are six universally relevant and fundamental factors that people generally cannot change about themselves: ability/disability, age, ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs and sexual orientation. These make up the core dimensions of any diversity initiative.

Additional Dimensions

Your company needs to decide the importance it will give to additional diversity factors. Effective categories are: Organisation, Market & Consumption, Work & Employment and Personal & Lifestyle.
