News › For diver­sity & tole­rance · Opto­Net signs Diver­sity Charter

Opto­Net e.V. signs the Diver­sity Char­ter and is thus visi­bly com­mit­ted to an appre­cia­tive and pre­ju­dice-free working envi­ron­ment. The Diver­sity Char­ter is an initia­tive to pro­mote diver­sity in com­pa­nies and institutions.

By signing the Diver­sity Char­ter, we want to send a clear signal for diver­sity and tole­rance in the world of work and signal our appre­cia­tion of all employees regard­less of age, eth­nic ori­gin and natio­na­lity, gen­der and gen­der iden­tity, phy­si­cal and men­tal abi­li­ties, reli­gion and world­view, sexual ori­en­ta­tion and social origin.

»We are facing fun­da­men­tal chan­ges in the world of work – and not just in our indus­try,« says Nora Kirs­ten, Mana­ging Direc­tor of Opto­Net. »With our com­mit­ment to diver­sity, we want to be a role model and work with our mem­bers and part­ners to adapt to social and eco­no­mic chan­ges such as glo­ba­liz­a­tion, demo­gra­phic change and a decli­ning workforce.″

The Diver­sity Char­ter is an initia­tive to pro­mote diver­sity in com­pa­nies and insti­tu­ti­ons. For more infor­ma­tion on the con­tent of the Diver­sity Char­ter and the points we have com­mit­ted to by signing it, please see the Char­ter text
