Diversity Charter

Diversity Charter

Understanding diversity as an opportunity: Globalisation and demographic change are influencing our modern society, and so is the working world of public administration. The district of Waldeck-Frankenberg wants to cultivate an organisational culture that meets the changing demands of a modern, diverse society - with appreciation and respect. One piece of the puzzle is the signing of the Charter. It is a nationwide initiative under the patronage of German Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel.

The aim of the Diversity Charter is to create a working environment that is free of prejudice and in which all employees are valued - regardless of gender, gender identity, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, world view, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity. In a climate of acceptance and mutual trust, the diversity of employees, customers, partners and citizens is to be lived more strongly than before in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district. This positive approach creates opportunities for innovative and creative problem solving. Human resources development plays a key role in this. A working group of experts is currently being formed within the district administration who will work internally and externally to initiate implementation in the various areas.
