The impact

Diversity is a touchy subject in many different fields and not always looked upon highly. Diversity is very important and works well at Evonik. It provides different perspective and ideas. It also generates new knowledge on innovative ways that Evonik can get ahead of competitors. Diversity is experience. Diversity is perspective.

Ask around

Many people embrace the different diversity amongst each other. It is important to talk about it and cherish it. At Evonik, many colleagues talk about their cultures and traditions. Exchanging thoughts and having an open environment creates for positive discussions. Attending cultural events put on by your company or even another group will enlighten individuals on different styles of life and freshen up the idea of spicing up life through diversity and culture.

Fortunately Evonik looks at diversity with a positive perspective. Therefore, there are many people with different backgrounds and cultures working for Evonik.
