One of the core values of the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy, and the Max Planck Society is treating each other with respect. We believe in the value of diversity, which drives innovation by providing new perspectives and creative ideas.

The Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy (MPI-SP) is pleased to announce the signing of the Charter against discrimination in the workplace. We join 12 other Bochum employers from the education, research and industry fields in their pledge to build a respectful work environment.

“The signing of the Charter reiterates our ongoing commitment to fostering a prejudice-free work environment for all our employees.”, says Axel Degenhardt, the Head of Administration. “A clear stand against discrimination is extremely important for such a diverse workplace like ours. With employees coming from 21 nations, having different cultures and backgrounds, it is imperative for us to uphold a respectful work atmosphere. We will collaborate with our new partners in creating measures for prevention of discrimination, violence and harassment in order to maintain a positive work environment for all our employees and trainees. “, adds Gilles Barthe, the Managing Director of the MPI-SP.
