Diversity & inclusion are our driving force

#TeamMAHLE is diverse - and we see that as a great advantage. As an internationally operating Group, diversity and equal opportunity are part of MAHLE’s identity and are firmly established in our corporate values. We value our workforce—irrespective of gender, gender identity, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or ideology, disability, age, and sexual orientation or identity. We promote the diversity and inclusion of the different experiences and backgrounds of our employees and see this as an opportunity: through diversity and inclusion, we can increase our innovative performance and support our business targets as ONE MAHLE team.

Already in 2016 MAHLE signed Germany’s Diversity Charter and made an official group-wide commitment to fostering diversity and implementing corresponding initiatives.

Our commitment

At MAHLE, we value the diversity of our people and foster a respectful and inclusive work environment. For us, each employee’s unique perspectives, experiences, and ideas are essential for innovation and performance. Therefore, we strive for an atmosphere that empowers every employee to reach their full potential, encourages new ideas, and engages and attracts talent.

How we promote diversity & inclusion

We are continuously strengthening this commitment with a variety of measures to create the sense of belonging and inclusive work environment: from shaping Diversity & Inclusion values, to integrating Diversity & Inclusion into our business processes as well as raising awareness and empower our employees.


Empowerment of female leaders and professionals

With the Female Empowerment Program for female talents at various career levels, we pursue the goal of empowering women at MAHLE by enabling them to develop and make their individual strengths visible, support each other, and build a strong network. "Female Network Breaks" and other events continue to provide an opportunity for informal exchange. We are globally involved in activities for International Women's Day and participate actively in local external initiatives and networks.

We are diversity

As a global company, our different nationalities, backgrounds, and mindsets make us unique and powerful in our corporate culture and business. We encourage and support diversity in our organization and raise awareness of its different aspects. We have expanded our agenda to address all dimensions of diversity with the aim of fostering them throughout our organization. We address this by several programs and campaigns through each year: global collaboration and networking initiatives for female empowerment, celebrations of Diversity Day, joining Pride Month or sharing MAHLE employees experiences for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, to mention but a few. Diversity starts with every single individual that is why at MAHLE we encourage you to stay truly yourself here.

International teams & collaboration

Around 72,000 employees shape the work at MAHLE. But whether we are sitting just a few meters or several time zones apart in Jundiai, Tokyo, or Šempeter, we are connected through MAHLE.​ Not only our projects benefit from this intercultural exchange - our employees also grow from different perspectives and experiences. ​In addition to language courses and intercultural training, we promote international cooperation and the integration of diversity in our everyday working life with various learning opportunities such as a dedicated diversity and inclusion learning path on LinkedIn.

We value the diversity of our workforce, foster equality and fair treatment - no matter who you are or who you love. We stand up for that in our everyday work and show our solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community on occasions such as Pride Month or the International Day against Homophobia, Bisexuality, and Transphobia. We are also represented as a proud employer at Europe's largest LGBTIQ+ job & career fair Sticks & Stones.

"As a foundation company, MAHLE offers a lot of benefits. These include, for example, the benefit package "MAHLEforME" or the company health prevention with sports activities, medical care, etc. The flexible working hours and the possibility of working remotely, also offer me a lot of flexibility. That's a great advantage, especially for me as a father in turbulent times.”
