What do we mean by Diversity and Inclusion (D&I)?
We believe in the power of different perspectives
Diversity and Inclusion at Voith: Our commitment. Our culture.
Over the last 150 years, the diversity of our colleagues has contributed to our pioneering spirit and leadership in the global industries and markets we serve. By promoting a culture of inclusion based on mutual respect, appreciation and equal opportunities, as well as embracing differences, we encourage our employees to be who they truly are and who they aspire to be.
For Voith, diversity is the variety of our employees with differences in age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, educational and professional background as well as all other individual differences. We believe that these diversity dimensions including individual differences such as religion, culture, beliefs, sexual orientation, disabilities, personal and social background as well as different experiences, talents and strengths, induce diversity of thought.
By inclusion, we mean the way we work together at Voith. An inclusive work culture is a culture of mutual respect, appreciation and equal opportunities, which is open to different ideas and perspectives. We believe in the power of different backgrounds, ways of thinking and approaches as well as the opportunity to think out-of-the-box in order to create innovative products, services and processes.
