Transgender Guidelines be.queer
To be able to be yourself in the workplace - to ensure this for trans* people as well, be.queer has developed guidelines. The guide for trans* employees is intended to encourage them to live their gender identity at work and provides tips and points of contact for shaping this process. Managers and HR play an essential role in the coming out process and transition. They can play a significant role in shaping their employees' opinions and acceptance and making the process as comfortable as possible for the trans* person. A guide was also created for these target groups.

In addition, there are a variety of initiatives and events around the topic of gender diversity, such as:

Through the CR Council, the topic of corporate responsibility was bundled and focused across the board. A particular focus was placed on some DEI topics because they were identified as particularly important in the context of our corporate activities.
