Our Respekt! Diversity Ambassadors at the H-BRS
„I am committed to diversity because it must be a matter of course that every person is treated equally and fairly. No one should be disadvantaged because of skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, social origin, religion, disability or age. As this still sounds like a futuristic utopia today, we need actions and people who take a stand for a world without discrimination. At H-BRS, we have the chance to be a role model on these extremely important issues to serve as an inspiration for the rest of society.”
Jairo Compostela Paramio - Diversity Ambassador
„I am committed to diversity because I believe there is power in being different. As a human race, we should use our differences to our benefit. Our different places of origin, cultures, and opinions should breed learning opportunities. Diversity has helped me learn about different cultures and respect other people’s values and ideologies. It has enabled me to have meaningful interactions with others and embrace our differences. It also allows me to share my world with others.”
Njavwa Mbao - Diversity Ambassador
„I am committed to diversity because all people, regardless of gender, age, religion, skin colour or origin, should be valued and recognised. Every person should be treated equally and fairly. It is precisely diversity and different life experiences that broaden our horizons. A good functioning of our society depends on accepting diversity as a reality and shaping it together, because without diversity a society cannot remain modern and democratic.”
Fayez Allalaf - Diversity Ambassador
