OUR INITIATIVES AND NETWORKS

We work not only at the university itself, but also in initiatives and networks to ensure that equality and diversity are integrated at colleges and universities and, of course, in businesses. The first examples are the signing of the Diversity Charter and the founding membership in the Employers for Equality programme. They exemplify equality and diversity at IU University of Applied Sciences.  

The following list offers a first impression of the initiatives. This page will be regularly expanded to include networks for people who would like to get personally involved and network with other interested parties. 


Charter of Diversity - We are proud to be part of it!

Since 2019, we have been part of a nationwide movement and the largest network for diversity management in Germany.  

We show the great importance that diversity has within IU and actually institutionalise what we really live. The idea of diversity is and has been part of our organisation and shapes our work and study culture. It has already been proven that diversity promotes innovation, and it is precisely innovation and creative solutions that are at the heart of the Career Partner Group. Promoting diversity also helps us, among other things, to keep developing further.
