Diversity at WHU

Founded in 2015, Diversity at WHU is a student-group concerned with bringing diversity- and LGBT-related topics into daily campus life. With the support of the WHU Career Center and several corporations, the group organizes an annual WHU Diversity Day with current diversity-related topics in business life. The event is open to the entire WHU community and aims at delivering insights into perspectives of diversity management as well as the importance of creating safe environments for employees. 

With widespread connections to the WHU faculty, the alumni association InPraxi, and the WHU Career Center, Diversity at WHU interacts as an intermediary to bring together students and young professionals to allow an exchange of personal experiences and provide guidance and counseling regarding e.g. women in leadership positions, being out on the job, and how employers support their LGBTQ-employees. 

Join as a member of the WHU community

We welcome all members of the WHU community, regardless of their study program or other association (e.g. Tauschie, PhD, etc.). No formal application is required and we meet in informal settings.

Support as a company

Your company can actively support the student-group either through participating in the WHU Diversity Day or by providing career opportunities. Please get in touch for further information.
