Date: 19.06.2023

Time: 09:00 – 13:00

Location: online

Language: English

Target group: people in organizations who are interested in making a lasting change in their corporate culture


Together with the participants we will discuss the following topics:

  • Why corporate culture trumps corporate strategy;
  • How the internal reality of the individual and collective is related to the external reality;
  • Why a target culture of DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging) is desirable for all of us;
  • What role I, as an individual, can play in my company’s culture;
  • How we can develop a target culture of DEIB together.

About the format:

Powerful synergies are formed in our Experience Exchanges: Participants learn directly from each other and share practical solutions. Best practices and learnings from other companies are thus made directly usable and help to make one’s own DEI work more targeted and efficient.

My name is Robert Franken (he/him). I am a consultant for organizational culture, D&I and transformation. Before that, my professional focus was on tech and community startups (I was CEO of and, among others). This experience is particularly valuable for my work, because I don’t preach change and ways, but have done many of the things myself that are necessary to get people behind a goal. My approach is a systemic one. We need to make sure we embed all initiatives in the higher purpose and strategic path of the organization. We need to empower people so they can live up to their responsibilities.
