We Choose to Include: LGBTQIA+ at Siemens Energy
Up to one-third of a person's potential can be lost if the person is forced to hide key elements of their personality. That's why, at Siemens Energy, we encourage everyone to bring their whole self to work. Not only out of respect, but also because it makes us stronger, more creative, and more innovative. In this episode of our Passion for Energy Podcast, we talk to a colleague who hid a part of her life in the past - but now talks openly about it.
An inclusive world is a better world.
Listen respectfully, learn from others, and we'll all mutually benefit from our differences. Even small changes in the way we think about inclusion and act can energize society in new and positive ways.
