Respect, tolerance, diversity lived out – these are the objectives of the LGBTIQ* and friends network #WeDriveProud at Volkswagen. The communication platform arranges regular meetings and manages membership of an Intranet group, looking out for the interests of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersexual, as well as queer people, and came into being in March 2019 as a Diversity Management initiative.
The network has 450 members, some of whom we will introduce here.

He has now been commuting between Berlin and Wolfsburg for eight years and has become involved with the #WeDriveProud network as a speaker.
