Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity breed success
We believe that different cultures enrich us and make working together more enjoyable and more successful. We are committed to a corporate policy that values, supports, and utilizes diversity.
This is demonstrated, for example, in our mission statement, in our management principles, and by our signing of the “Diversity Charter”. Diversity & inclusion management is therefore a fixed component of our HR policy. In 2011 thyssenkrupp also signed the joint declaration by the 30 DAX companies (it is a blue chip stock market index consisting of the 30 major German companies) on “Women in leadership positions”. We are firmly behind the goals set out in the declaration. Together with technical universities thyssenkrupp is involved in the career network Femtec (an international career platform for women in engineering and natural sciences), which supports female students in technical subjects. In this way we make it easier for female talent to enter engineering occupations.
