On July 25, Volkswagen will participate for the first time with its “We Drive Proud” network in an online version of Berlin’s Christopher Street Day (CSD) – and thus take a clear stand for diversity. “We live diversity” is one of the Group’s principles. Karin Tröndle’s story also tells of this diversity. The 59-year-old has been working for Volkswagen for 23 years, currently in axle alignment. She began her career in the Group as a man.

In the interview she talks openly about her path to becoming a woman, how she deals with her transsexuality, the significance of the CSD and the one law that she would like to change if she could.
