Taking a stand against discrimination in cooperation and external contact

We communicate every day – sometimes more, sometimes less successfully. Colleagues who get along well with each other and with customers achieve better results in the long term. This also includes taking a stance against discriminatory statements and actions.

In practical terms, it is about recognizing situations, finding ways to react and setting limits, for example in the face of racist or sexist slogans. Values such as justice and tolerance offer support and orientation as the foundation of our democratic coexistence. However, we rarely deal with them in our everyday work. That’s why we consciously take time for this in the workshop.

Together we will address questions such as: What shapes your cooperation? How do you react in challenging situations, in the event of differences of opinion or discrimination? What does it take for your corporate culture to benefit from diversity? With inputs, examples and interactive exercises, we invite you to exchange ideas about attitudes and collaboration and show how you can strengthen them through connecting communication.
