This is us

It all started with the conviction that Switzerland needs more diversity and inclusion and the Swiss Diversity Award Night to express this - that was in 2019. The idea caught on! So in 2021, in collaboration with representatives from the business community, the Swiss Diversity Forum was born. And so today we have become the Swiss Diversity Platform - a place where ideas are realized on how to live and develop Switzerland in its diversity.

Swiss Diversity is a non-profit association consisting of people with the vision that diversity and inclusion should be given more space in Switzerland. The commitment is based on voluntary work and thus shows all the more: everyone can make an individual contribution to realize great visions. Diversity & Inclusion Services GmbH is responsible for the implementation of our projects.
