Diversity is in our DNA
Diversity is an integral part of our corporate DNA. Because innovation arises where we open ourselves to new impressions. Diversity is an important success factor for our company. This means age, gender, sexual identity, religion, ethnic origin and disabilities. The goal of our diversity strategy: to create an inclusive corporate culture where we respect and value everyone. With us, you can be who you are.
We are part of the Success Factor Family initiative of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs. Diversity is part of our corporate culture. It is something we respect and value. We confirmed this as early as 2007 when we signed the Diversity Charter.
No matter where we work: We are a team. With us, you can be who you are.
Inform and raise awareness
Our workshops and guidelines inform and educate. This means that we are constantly learning and exchanging ideas. The BrownBag sessions are just one example. Plus, we encourage the support of people from socially oppressed groups. The key word here is allyship.
We demonstrate our attitude: You can see us at CSDs, for example. We set ourselves targets for female share and ethnic diversity. We address everyone with gender-sensitive language. And: we obtain feedback through regular staff surveys.
Job sharing, VacationPlus, part-time and block time: We offer you an attractive mix that best fits your lifestyle. With Full Flex Office, you are free to decide where you want to work: at home, in a café, at the office or even up to 20 days per year from abroad in the EU.
Our life balance advises and supports you with every aspect of care, support and provision. In addition, we provide opportunities for time off work, respite services as well as a carers’ network.

Equal Pay Award
Stopping unequal pay before it happens. Vodafone was awarded the “German Equal Pay Award” by the Federal Minister for Equal Opportunities, Lisa Paus for this initiative. The award recognises Vodafone’s long-standing commitment to combating the gender pay gap. The focus is on an automated mechanism which ensures that equal pay is directly factored into every hiring or salary progression, proactively preventing pay gaps.
