Beiersdorf celebrates diversity and tolerance

Hamburg, August 2, 2021 - Beiersdorf is inviting to celebrate diversity and tolerance with a two-day public 'Pride Festival' on August 4th and 5th. In line with the motto 'Sharing the Pride together,' the company has enlisted various major cooperation partners for the COVID-compliant event in virtual space. Prominent guests include Germany's most famous drag queen Olivia Jones, Veuve Noir, Corny Littmann and Imam Ludovic-Mohamed Zahed. Overall, the festival promises a mix of top-class entertainment and authentic stories. Beiersdorf colleagues are also showing their support for this event.

The 'Pride Festival' is organized by the 'Be You @Beiersdorf' network. The community stands for a colorful and tolerant working environment and supports the interests of LGBT*IQ people. Within the company, it is an important pillar for diversity and inclusion: 'At Beiersdorf, an open society and an inclusive working environment are important to us.
