Diversity and inclusion at Beiersdorf

As an internationally operating company, diversity, tolerance, equal opportunity and inclusion are fundamental values of Beiersdorf. They are internalized and promoted throughout the company worldwide. We expressly reject all forms of direct and indirect discrimination in all areas of the company and in all decisions. This includes discrimination on the basis of gender, age, color, religion, ideology, sexual orientation, or disability. Equally, cultural, ethnic, and national origins, and political and philosophical views do not play any role. We cherish variety. Our employees’ wide range of backgrounds help us to better understand our consumers around the world and encourage creativity.


Following the recent unsubstantiated allegation of a “we don’t do gay” comment from a member of Beiersdorf staff, we would like to take this opportunity to reinforce and emphasize our long-standing commitment to diversity and mutual respect. This stance and belief is shared and lived throughout Beiersdorf. There is and will be zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind. We are an international company with more than 20.000 employees in over 100 countries worldwide. Our products serve a very diverse consumer base around the globe. Appreciating and respecting individuality and inclusion has a long tradition at Beiersdorf and we will continue promoting an open and inclusive culture in our entire organization.
