Our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

DOUGLAS stands for diversity. We make no distinctions in skin color, origin, sexual orientation or personal pronouns. Douglas sees itself as a democratic and inclusive brand that stands for an open and diverse society. As an employer, DOUGLAS lives by equal treatment, tolerance and equal opportunities across all levels of its employees. Through internal formats and external campaigns, we take a stand against discrimination and for the inclusion of women, the LGBTQI+ community, various ethnic and age groups. We want to encourage everyone to be the way they want to be. We always strive to inspire our customers and employees to express their individuality.

Certified by BGA
In February 2021, DOUGLAS was the first company to receive the Diversity Certificate by BeyondGenderAgenda (BGA). The BeyondGenderAgenda is an initiative to integrally anchor diversity in business, certifying companies for successful efforts in diversity, equal opportunity and an inclusive work environment – internally and externally. BGA believes there is a clear link between diverse leadership teams and financial outperformance. Just like BGA, we believe in this principle, too, which is confirmed by our economic success in recent years. We have anchored our long-term commitment to the topic of diversity not least in our purpose, in which we commit ourselves to a world where everyone feels seen, heard and valued in their individual uniqueness.
