Diversity Charter

By signing the "Diversity Charter" (Charta der Vielfalt) in October 2011, UPB is advocating that all employees be equally valued. Aspects such as gender, gender identity, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, ideology, disability, age, sexual orientation or identity should not lead to any discrimination.

By signing the agreement, Paderborn University is also part of the largest network for diversity, stands for an unprejudiced and open working environment, commits itself to commitment and is informed at an early stage about news and activities in the field of diversity.
