Betriebliche Demokratie stärken – Rassismus und Rechtsextremismus im Betrieb bekämpfen

Region(s): Baden-Württemberg Active in: Cross-industry Project partner: DGB Bildungswerk Baden-Württemberg e.V.

Education and advice for workforces and works councils on how to deal with right-wing extremist works council lists and other racist and right-wing extremist activities in the company

Project target

According to the industrial citizenship approach, employees with positive experiences of participation and democracy are significantly less likely to adopt racist and right-wing extremist positions. The project therefore supports works councils and store stewards in implementing their offers for their colleagues in a way that is as participatory as possible. Together with staff, works council members and store stewards, we also develop company-specific strategies for dealing with right-wing extremist works council lists and other right-wing extremist and racist activities.

Target group

Works council members, store stewards, employees in companies in Baden-Württemberg and vocational students at vocational schools in Baden-Württemberg.
