INKLUDIEREN. RESPEKTIEREN. ERMUTIGEN.

Die Vielfalt der Menschen, Lebensstile, Meinungen und Einstellungen sind entscheidende Treiber für Innovation und Erfolg. Deshalb sind Inklusion und Vielfalt in der Kultur von Zalando fest verankert. Inklusion bedeutet für uns eine Kultur, in der wir alle zusammenarbeiten, unsere einzigartigen Talente weiterentwickeln und gemeinsam Großes erreichen können. Wir glauben, dass eine integrative Kultur der effektivste Weg für uns ist, die Vielfalt innerhalb des Unternehmens zu erhöhen. Wir sensibilisieren für die Bedeutung von Vielfalt und Inklusion an allen Stellen des "Lebenszyklus" unserer Mitarbeitenden: Von Onboardings für Newbies bis zum Engagement im von Mitarbeitenden organisierten Netzwerk für Vielfalt. Die Diversity Guild ist einer der wichtigsten internen Treiber des Netzwerks, der die eigenen impliziten Voreingenommenheiten an wichtigen Entscheidungspunkten, wie Leistungsüberprüfungen oder Beförderungen, in Frage stellt und garantiert, dass sich die Unternehmenskultur vielfältig und inklusiv weiterentwickelt.

"I’m working as Sr. Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Zalando. I’ve had the privilege of spending half of my time supporting Zalando’s Diversity Guild as well as Diversity and Inclusion initiatives at Zalando. This includes Christopher Street Day, Diversity Day, Celebrate Her, and others. It feels so rewarding to spend my time working on projects that are important and meaningful, such as organizing International Women’s Day. It was a great way to recognize our colleagues that inspire us with their passion and hard work. It’s also been fantastic to see our allies throughout the company step up and support women at Zalando."

"I recently joined the Cloud Native Infrastructure team at Zalando, it’s pretty exciting. I love that we’re trying to solve deeply technical problems so engineers all across Zalando have more time to focus on their products. My favourite D&I project is to teach an “Intro to Programming” course to women who are trying to switch careers to tech. It’s a pretty fulfilling endeavor. I’m quite taken by how a job in tech can change people’s lives. I want everyone who wants it to have an opportunity to break into this industry, not just people who have the time or resources to take a few months off from work."

"I work as a Producer at Zalon. I'm basically a software project manager (or scrum master) for some of the teams that build the web and mobile platforms for our personal stylist service. The Diversity & Inclusion project I have been most involved in lately has been improving the wheelchair accessibility of our buildings. Zalando has a lot of buildings in Berlin alone, and they aren't all the most accessible if you are using a wheelchair. I have been working with our Corporate Real Estate team to ensure that the new buildings that are still being built will be accessible from day 1, as well as figuring out the highest impact retrofits we can do with existing buildings. I have learned so much about how large scale projects operate as well as really shifting my mindset to be more accessibility-aware. I don’t have a mobility impairment, which means that I have a tremendous amount of privilege when I am simply moving around our world. For me, this project has really been about making sure I'm fighting for equity for everyone, whether or not their struggle is one that I personally share."

"I’m working as a recruiting coordinator in the P&O department. What I love about this job is the exciting communication with future colleagues and getting to be the one who brings positive news regarding their applications. My initial moment to launch the CSD project was when I realized just how big the LGBTQ community at Zalando really is. So I couldn't help but wonder, where is the Zalando truck at the CSD? Seeing all those big companies in the CSD parade and no Zalando doesn't seem to fit. The LGBTQ employees in our company constitute a very happy, proud and confident part of the LGBTQ community in Berlin and I feel how important it is to a) share the confidence and b) represent Zalando at the gay pride as one of the gay friendliest employers around. It is a big thing for me to know and to feel that my company supports the LGBTQ community. Working in a place where you can be yourself and feel accepted is the best feeling a company and colleagues can give you."

"I took over the newly created position as a Social Counselor in October 2017, responsible for all employees located at our building in Leipziger Straße. What I do love about my job is to support all the employees with their individual problems and to help them finding a solution or also external help, which is accompanied by strict confidentiality and neutrality. I really enjoyed having a Diversity Day for all the Customer Care employees and wider teams. We planned several activities to give everyone the opportunity to experience what it is like to master your everyday life with a restriction. But my highlight was our Diversity Gallery. I was touched by the effort and thoughts from our "testimonials" and what statements they made. My colleague Coskun had the idea in the past and we hope that we will find more and more people to join our Diversity gallery in the future."

"I've been working at Zalando for over four years working as a company social worker. I love to collaborate with all departments and all kinds of people in my work. Within the workplace I find it important to learn from each other and to grow together. Diversity Day 2018 was my personal highlight as this day was colorful, wild and wonderful. It was a relaxed atmosphere and the photo box and movie theater were well received. We were able to bring the topic of diversity closer to our employees and it was and is a great start to further educate ourselves in the long term and to continue to work together on the subject of diversity. So that every employee can remember this day, we have hung up a large screen with all the pictures of the employees at the location. Diversity is close to my heart because I see every person as an individual and everyone in society should be accepted as they are."

Lora Vardarova Portrait

"At Zalando I have been involved in many big projects where I had no prior experience or knowledge with the tech stack used. I was happy to take these challenges as I love learning new things. These experiences helped me to grow stronger and to build my confidence that I can tackle any challenge. I am further passionate about building inclusive and positive workplaces, where people can be themselves and everyone is treated in a respectful, and equal manner. Two of the D&I projects I was involved in are Anti-Bullying Week and Celebrate Her. The aim of Anti-Bullying Week was to raise awareness about workplace bullying and remind everyone about the importance of being excellent to each other. The Celebrate Her campaign was inspired by Women's History Month. The campaign was an answer to studies showing that women’s achievements are often overlooked and undervalued in the workplace. The aim of the campaign was to help people overcome this bias and to highlight the contributions and achievements of women at Zalando."

"I'm working with the Tech Academy team, and we provide learning solutions (trainings, online learning, workshops, etc) for people in tech roles. Currently I'm highly involved in developing Machine Learning workshops for techies, product and upper management. I love the fact that we're helping people learn something new and develop themselves. Further I’m supporting the Diversity Guild at Zalando. For me diversity is key, as it brings more exposure to people, but often I think we get stuck in the idea that we must have a more diverse company. It's not enough to bring more females/internationals/etc. to Zalando; we must make sure that Zalando becomes an inclusive place where different opinions and backgrounds are valued and are not a source of conflict. At the moment, the project I am most passionate about and have been investing most time on is Mentorship at Zalando. What excites me the most about this project is that, although its ultimate goal is to increase diversity in our leadership levels, it's also a programme that will help all Zalandos grow and develop – and I'm really passionate about that."

Ziel der Kampagne war es, den Menschen zu helfen, diese Vorurteile zu überwinden und die Beiträge und Erfolge von Frauen bei Zalando hervorzuheben.
