Democracy Training for employees in the steel and automotive industry

Discriminatory statements and actions, the attempt to exert political influence on the part of the radical right and the transformation processes, especially in the industrial sector, are far-reaching challenges for companies and their workforces. We would like to work together with companies to promote a democratic, non-discriminatory and inclusive corporate culture. To this end, we offer our Democracy training in addition to our consulting services.

In our training, we provide employees and explicitly members of co-determination committees with the skills to recognize and counteract discrimination, to take a stand against extreme right-wing groups in the workplace, and to advocate for a workplace culture based on solidarity. We strengthen people’s ability to make decisions and take action in the project areas addressed. We focus on the individual perspectives of the participants and actively involve them in the training. The participants can bring new knowledge, ideas and actions back to their companies.

The training can be offered in three or two days.
