As thought-leaders in finance and management, we moreover foster competencies in diversity and inclusion that make a real impact on society. Through research and teaching, extracurricular activities and advisory mandates around the globe, we advance values of mutual respect, open-mindedness and tolerance – often in hard-to-reach places. We have enhanced communities in a diverse world and raised awareness of the benefits of collaboration with a variety of perspectives.
In this context, we are committed to offering everyone in our community a fair and equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, physical ability, age, sexual orientation or identity. All members of the Frankfurt School community are likewise encouraged to take active measures against discrimination in order to prevent all forms of prejudice and intolerance.
As a signatory to the Charta der Vielfalt, Frankfurt School commits to embedding and cultivating diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and appreciation in our campus, business operations and corporate culture. We likewise recognise the intrinsic potential inherent in diversity and utilise it advantageously for our organisation.
In 2021, Frankfurt School established a Diversity & Inclusion Task Force. The main tasks of the Task Force are to promote and monitor the School’s activities related to diversity and inclusion.
This includes establishing and reviewing performance indicators, reviewing and creating policies as well as proposing and implementing activities that encourage diversity or address shortcomings. The Task Force likewise collaborates with student initiatives to connect the ideas of students to the goals and activities of the Task Force. In addition, the Task Force may also be called upon to consider any diversity and inclusion issues that may arise at the School.
