Individually adapted education and counseling in dealing with exclusion, discrimination and racism and conspiracy myths in the company context - offers for employees, works councils, management personnel

Project target

Establishment of a support network to improve social relations and democratic competence in companies. We provide support in dealing with racist attitudes and conspiracy ideologies in the workplace through advice, awareness-raising, further training and networking. In consultation with industry-specific trade unions (IG Metall, IG BCE, NGG), activities to implement codes of conduct are designed, evaluated and adapted.

Target group

Employees, personnel managers, trainers, works council members, trade union representatives, migrants


Consulting, coaching, training and networking on how to deal with exclusion, racism and conspiracy myths in the workplace:

  • Is a customer being discriminated against? Is a colleague being racially insulted? Is the supervisor spreading conspiracy myths? We support you in dealing with and preventing such and similar incidents – from unconscious discrimination to dealing with openly expressed hatred.
  • We would be happy to plan with you which suitable format we can use to support you in countering racism and exclusion in the world of work and shaping everyday life at work with more democracy.
  • Supporting migrant employees in getting to know democratic participation instruments in the workplace, such as co-determination committees.
