As we strive to enable transformative change and shape a sustainable future for coming generations, we value socially responsible interaction. We are aware of the importance of interpersonal relationships, be it at work or outside of it.
This is why we have introduced a Code of Conduct at adelphi, which all employees are expected to adhere to at all times. This Code of Conduct is a testimony to our commitment to ethical, lawful and responsible behaviour. It is based on universal values and principles and includes, among other things, adelphi's relations with partners and the public, a working environment without discrimination or the special protection of vulnerable groups. All of adelphi's business and project activities are conducted in compliance with this code.
The Diversity Charter
adelphi is colourful, as colourful as society! We signed the " Charta der Vielfalt" (Diversity Charter) in November 2022 and thus set a clear sign for diversity and equal opportunities. In order to be successful economically and as a society, we need to recognise, promote and make use of diversity. This applies to the diversity of our workforce and the diverse needs of our business partners and citizens. The diversity of our employees with their different skills and talents opens up opportunities for innovative and creative solutions.
By implementing the "Diversity Charter" in our organisation, we aim to create a respectful working environment for all employees regardless of age, ethnic origin and nationality, gender and gender identity, physical and mental abilities, religion and belief, sexual orientation and social background. Recognising and promoting diverse potentials creates economic advantages for our organisation.
We create an environment of mutual respect and trust.
Diversity Task Forces
We are proud to be part of this nationwide diversity network but that's not all: in 2021 and 2022, we commissioned an external organisational consultancy to survey the status quo of the various dimensions of diversity at adelphi. Based on the results, we have formed working groups to address the topics of "gender", "inclusion" and "working-class children".
We consider diversity-sensitive recruiting another important approach to strengthening diversity at adelphi. For this reason, we have decided to cooperate with ArbeiterKind.de. Germany's largest organisation for first-generation students will support us in recruiting more people from non-academic households for adelphi in the future.
