Sexual orientation & gender identity

We celebrate colleagues of all genders and sexual orientations.

The sexual orientation and gender identity of employees is often regarded as a “private matter”. This can lead to colleagues feeling the need to pretend they are a different person or to hide their real identity in their day-to-day work environment. However, at RWE we want everyone to be themselves, without having to change who they are. We believe that this is the only way for employees to reach their full potential.

Manuela Neuroth has been awarded as Germany's Top 3 Outed Executive by Uhlala.

"With the list of TOP LGBT+ Voices, the UHLALA Group annually recognizes the commitment of 50 executives who have openly supported equal opportunities for LGBT+ people in the working world in Germany. They are united by the mission to pass on their positive experiences in working life to others and to encourage them to stand by their difference. I am very pleased to have achieved 3rd place in this on behalf of the entire LGBT*IQ community at RWE.”

„When I talk to my colleagues about weekends with my husband, it’s the same as my colleague talking about his latest city break with his wife. This normality in our daily lives must be anchored even more firmly in our consciousness to enable us to live all aspects of diversity in our company.“
