Since 2020, CFE has been working together with the Anti-Discrimination Association Germany (advd) and RAA Berlin in the Competence Network “Anti-Discrimination and Diversity Focus”. As part of the federal program "Demokratie leben!", the network has set itself the task of advancing the professional discourse on the topics of anti-discrimination, equality and diversity focus nationwide and supporting governmental and non-governmental organizations in preventing, recognizing, addressing and reducing discrimination. It is also intended to strengthen the actors' ability to better deal with diversity and to use effective strategies to make their organizations more representative and inclusive.
The competence network is characterized by a power-critical, intersectional and structural understanding of discrimination, which is simultaneously directed against individual, institutional as well as structural discrimination.
The competence network develops effective approaches and strategies
The focus of CFE's work in the network is on the last point - strategic and structural approaches from a leadership perspective
The Competence Network offers expert advice, networking, quantification, qualification and specially developed approaches, methods and professional standards in the thematic field of anti-discrimination and diversity orientation, makes these known within and outside the federal program and ensures a sustainable, nationwide transfer of the bundled expertise.
