At Daimler we count on the diversity of our employees and we capitalize on the different experiences, skills and perspectives that they have. Diversity takes center stage on one day of the year above all: Daimler Diversity Day. The main goals of Daimler Diversity Day are to consciously experience diversity, change perspectives, and understand how each individual in the company can benefit from Diversity Management.
The seventh Daimler Diversity Day took place on May 28, 2019 with activities around the world. With this event, Daimler is supporting the Charta der Vielfalt e.V. (German Diversity Charter) initiative to promote diversity in companies.
The slogan for Daimler Diversity Day 2019 was 'Change Your Perspective'. Hands-on activities at numerous locations worldwide encouraged participants to take a fresh look at the environment and adopt unfamiliar perspectives - such as that of a wheelchair user, a colleague with impaired vision, or colleagues with an unusual history. Not forgetting a look at other cultures, of course.
