DHL has marked the start of Pride Month by reaffirming its diversity commitment. "This is an exciting time for us to honor and embrace diversity, inclusivity, and the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community," said DHL. 

Promoting an inclusive environment

The diversity of DHL's people mirrors the diversity of its customers and the communities its part of.

DHL promotes an inclusive environment – guided by mutual respect, openness, honesty, trust and cooperation – so that everybody feels accepted and can be their best every day.

Award-winning diversity commitment 

Such is DHL's commitment to diversity that RainbowNet, the company employee network for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer employees founded in 2008, received the European Diversity Award in the category of Outstanding Employee Network.

As one of the largest inclusive employers in Germany, Deutsche Post DHL Group also received the Inklusionspreis für die Wirtschaft 2021 (Inclusion Award for Business) for its inclusive corporate strategy, barrier-free structures, and innovative solutions in the training and employment of people with disabilities.

For its exemplary inclusive activities across multiple dimensions of diversity – including inclusion and intersectionality – Deutsche Post AG also received the Total E-Quality award.

DHL sees strength in diversity 

As a global business, DHL sees strength in diversity. Not just in terms of gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, national origin or any other characteristic protected under law. But all the differences that make individuals unique.
