“We live diversity” – as one of the seven Group Essentials, this sentence is an essential part of the Volkswagen Group’s DNA. The goal: to bundle the potential of all the employees of different brands, countries, and subsidiaries with their different skills, perspectives, and experience within the Group, to bring together the best talent and ideas, and in this way to shape the future of the automotive industry together.
The task of diversity management is to raise employees’ awareness of the topic and encourage a culture in which diversity is lived and becomes visible in the Group as a matter of course. Our belief: diversity is no longer a soft success factor but a business-relevant added value and essential for the transformation of our Group – worldwide. Diversity is essential for corporate success, required by law, and something it has become impossible to imagine life without.
