The English term diversity stands for plurality, heterogeneity and difference. The term is used in German in its untranslated English form. Diversity describes the heterogeneity in society which is formed through social groups, migration, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, (socio-economic) descent, language and religion. In this concept of diversity, this plurality is considered positive and should be valued and supported.
