Promoting diversity

Promoting diversity is an integral part of our corporate culture, because at Deutsche Bahn, we know that all our more than 300,000 employees worldwide use their unique perspectives to contribute to our shared success. That is why it is important for us to create a respectful and non-discriminatory working environment. All our employees should have the same opportunities to develop.

To live up to our claim to be a provider of opportunities, we pursue active diversity management with numerous specific measures – from intercultural training and new approaches in recruiting to flexible working models that acknowledge different life phases. For example, we have set ourselves the goal to increase the proportion of women in management positions to 30% by the end of 2024. At the same time, we promote group-wide networks in which our employees can connect, support each other and jointly increase their visibility within the company.

We also want to design our products and services as inclusive as possible for our customers. They shall be open to everyone and exclude no one. A key focus area here is the ongoing improvement of accessibility at stations and on our trains. We have been involving affected parties in the development process for some time now.

In addition, we as a company show a firm standpoint. Whether through group-wide initiatives, memberships in numerous networks or at major events, we at Deutsche Bahn stand for openness, diversity and tolerance.

 

Key focus areas of social responsibility

We derive our key focus areas from our four clearly defined standpoints. They show in specific terms how we take social responsibility in everyday life.
