“Germany will only remain economically strong in the 2020s if we exploit our full potential. If you want to get involved, you shouldn't have a disadvantage based on gender, age, origin or sexual orientation. That's why I support BeyondGenderAgenda's concern to overcome such categories.”

Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn


has set itself the goal of securing and expanding the international competitiveness of the German economy in the long term by anchoring Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in the DNA of listed and medium-sized companies.

Based on the clear connection between D&I and business performance, equal opportunities for senior executives regardless of disabilities, gender, ages, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation and gender identity shall be ensured when it comes to staffing executive and supervisory board mandates. The aim is to establish a change of culture involving politics, society and economy.

BeyondGenderAgenda is the brand and platform for diversity and inclusion and currently includes the chapters Disability, EthnicityGender, Generation and LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and others).


Together with our partners, we achieve more.

"Germany occupies lower ranks in international diversity and inclusion studies. This puts the long-term international competitiveness of our economy at risk. In addition, without an inclusive, appreciative work environment, it will become more and more difficult for companies to attract top talent from the market and, above all, to retain it. Diversity without real inclusion is nothing but PR and will not bring the positive results that diversified leadership teams can actually achieve."
