Diversity & Intercultural Competence

We need a new, resource-oriented view of diversity!

I have experienced how some talents have fallen through the cracks unrecognized. Whether within the family, the work environment, or society, people with different worlds of life and experience come up against each other everywhere. Mutual understanding is not always easy for them. In addition, people are socially disadvantaged because of some characteristics or origin.

That is why I consider diversity and intercultural competence central qualifications in all areas of life.

My Understanding of Diversity and Intercultural Competence

This includes:
▪ Recognizing diversity as a resource
▪ Creating a fair access to work and society
▪ Critically questioning one’s views
▪ Being aware of one’s values & expectations
▪ Enduring plurality in opinion and way of life
▪ Differentiating non-discriminatory thinking & speaking
▪ Developing diverse perspectives

Prudence is knowledge of the similarity of different things and the dissimilarity of similar things.
