Position: Diversity Strategy | Volkswagen AG 

Vortragstitel: Inclusive Leadership


In my talk I would like to touch upon the following questions:
What makes an individual feel included in a team? How can one freely express their thoughts and innovative ideas in an organization? How does one feel psychologically safe?
We at Volkswagen are of the opinion that the answer to these crucial questions lies in leadership. I look forward to a constructive and open discussion with all of you!
