Human “Biodiversity” in Work and Everyday Life
Nov. 07, 2017, 09:00 - 19:00
Geb. 06.35
R 219

Age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical condition, cultural background are some aspects of society’s shaping factors. But the majority of German (and West European) companies and organisations are still keeping up “monoculture” instead of human “biodiversity”. The norm is white, middle aged, with Western Christian background, heterosexual, not handicapped and when working in management positions male. Being different or belonging to a minority often means being excluded. Diversity programs enable people to work and live in an environment without discrimination and anxiety. As a result a winwin situation may develop.

• Innovation
A diverse team with different lifestyles and cultural backgrounds has an extended perspective to develop creative ideas (thinking out of the box).

• Positive Environment
People who feel welcome regardless of their different life experience are much more committed with a higher work motivation in their organisation or company.

• HR-Recruitment – Shortage of skilled labour Though professionals may be highly skilled – if belonging to social minorities or nonconformist groups they often escape notice because companies fail to think out of the box.
