Diversity

When most people think of the terms diversity and equal opportunity, they mainly think of gender equality, the advancement of women, or the compatibility of family and career. However, diversity involves much more than looking at differences between the sexes. It also includes other dimensions of diversity, such as social and ethnic origin, age, sexual orientation, possible disabilities, and also worldview.


In the social fabric of a university, people with diverse abilities come together. It is essential for successful development to make use of this pool.

The expansion of our diversity management promotes this culture and helps to increase equal opportunities for all and to reduce potential barriers. Joining the "Charta der Vielfalt" created concrete starting points for projects that positively influence the organizational culture at the TiHo. It is the declared goal of the TiHo to strengthen and expand this culture.

The "Charta der Vielfalt" is a voluntary commitment by the signatory organization to promote diversity and appreciation in the world of work. Many thousands of companies, universities and other organizations in Germany have already signed up to the charter.
The aim of the initiative is to promote the recognition and inclusion of diversity in the world of work in Germany and to create a working environment that is free of prejudice. All employees should be valued - regardless of age, ethnic origin and nationality, gender and gender identity, physical and mental abilities, religion and worldview, sexual orientation and social origin.
