Project target

“Couragiert Handeln im Betrieb” raises awareness among employees, works councils and vocational students about discrimination and ideologies of inequality in everyday work. Our consultations and training sessions show committed employees and those affected how to take a stand against ideologies of inequality and stand up for a democratic, non-discriminatory and inclusive workplace culture.

Target group

Employees, works councils, apprentices, vocational students and vocational school teachers in the automotive and steel industry.


Advice for co-determination bodies:

  • How can a company position itself sustainably against group-related misanthropy, discrimination, racism and conspiracy narratives? What educational programs and structural changes are needed? Qualified consultants implement the consulting processes and develop customized concepts together with the co-determination bodies.

Further training for employees:

  • Qualification as multipliers in a three-day seminar. Participants bring new knowledge, ideas and actions back to their companies.

Project days for vocational schools:

  • On various phenomena of group-related misanthropy. In addition to raising awareness, the focus is on motivation for courageous action.
