As a non-profit organization, we are committed to a more diverse society: to fair representation, real equality of opportunity and freedom of choice.
On our platform, we share stories and examples of personalities and projects that are already working hard for more diversity, equal opportunities and inclusion. Together, we want to break through traditional role models and prejudices – from the daycare center to the boardroom, from the individual to politics and business. We want to initiate and support a change in thinking at all levels.
We believe in a society in which all people, regardless of gender, skin color, origin, sexual orientation, religion or disability, are given equal opportunities and are represented. A society in which everyone can live freely and without prejudice.
Anti-discrimination: We say no to all forms of discrimination and actively fight against structural and individual racism, sexism and all other forms of discrimination.
Equal opportunities: We fight for equal opportunities in education, work and life for all people, regardless of their individual conditions and life realities.
Diversity & Inclusion: We actively promote diversity and ensure that all voices are heard, seen and valued.
Respect: We advocate for respectful interactions where differences are valued rather than devalued.
Solidarity: We stand together, supporting each other and those who need our support. Only with a strong movement behind us can each individual make a difference!
Openness: We are open to new ideas, cultures and people who enrich us and show us new perspectives.
Our clear position
We clearly say no to AFD and other organizations and individuals who promote xenophobia, racism, sexism and discrimination.
Our platform is a safe space, free from hate and intolerance. Any form of discrimination is not welcome here.
Join us. If you, just like us, want to believe in a better, more inclusive and diverse future, become part of our movement. Let’s stand together for a society where everyone gets the place they deserve – where everyone counts.
We are a team of like-minded people: We all believe that seriously promoting diversity in all areas of society is one of the central issues of our time. At the same time, we are seekers, finders, and stumblers – we don’t have a magic formula, but we want to fill our platform with as diverse voices as possible and let those who are committed to diversity, equal opportunity, and inclusion have their say. Also, we are (still) predominantly white and cisgender. We are aware of our privileged identities and positions. The fact that the majority of us are volunteers also implies a certain privileged status. Yet, it is important for us to be active ourselves. This is also our privilege, which we would like to use to change society.

Belinda Duvinage (she/her)
At MoreDiversity, she supports the editorial team on a voluntary basis with her many years of experience. She is convinced that the current political and economic situation requires more than ever a joint stand for diversity and equality, that companies also have a special duty here, and that diversity is not a "nice to have" but an existential necessity in order to develop and implement solutions for the complex crises of our time.
Or to put it in Belinda's words, "More perspectives increase solution space. Always!"
