German Diversity Day – Team GIGA Celebrates Diversity in Society and the World of Work

On 23 May 2023, we will celebrate together the 11th German Diversity Day. As a signatory to the Diversity Charter, we strive for an appreciative and prejudice-free working environment in which all team members can develop their potential to the best of their abilities.

  • To promote exchange and provide regular information on diversity-related events, we offer a variety of activities as well as today call on all interested employees to sign up for a GIGA-wide diversity-themed mailing list. In addition, the GIGA’s Equal Opportunities Officers, Dr. Lisa Hoffmann and Dr. Maren Wagner, are organising, among other things, a postcolonial city tour of Hamburg, which will provide information about the Hanseatic city’s role in colonial history. We also invite our employees to participate in a perception check on racism in Germany to create greater awareness of this issue.
