Diversity at the IOER
The IOER address the concept of Diversity by looking at the dimensions gender, age, ethnic origin, religion/belief, health/disability and sexual identity.
Nevertheless, we are aware that a person´s personality is made up of many more facets than the six dimensions listed.
In 2021, the IOER was awarded the "Total E-Quality" certificate for equal opportunities in business and science for the fourth time in a row - and again with the additional certificate "Diversity".
The jury particularly highlighted the fact that "the large number of precisely tailored measures set standards for the Leibniz Association in many areas and the jury was impressed by the participatory culture on the topics of equality and diversity.
The "Total E-Quality" rating can be reapplied for every three years. The IOER was awarded it for the first time in 2012.
The IOER also signed the "Charta der Vielfalt" in 2018. In doing so, we commit ourselves to, among other things:
Cultivate an organisational culture characterised by mutual respect and appreciation of every individual, recognise the diversity of society within and outside the organisation, inform our employees about diversity and involve them in the implementation of the Charter.
