Understand today. Shape tomorrow.
The Hertie School is a community committed to shared values of equity, diversity and inclusion in order to achieve and sustain excellence. We can attain the best results in research and teaching in a community that promotes different perspectives and new ideas and celebrates the full spectrum of human diversity across all dimensions including gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, age, race, national origin, sexual orientation, disability and religion or belief/world view. Diversity is a source of enrichment, innovation and creativity for the school. It is a critical factor for achieving and sustaining excellence and for educating our students and this is why we are a partner of SticksNStones.
