At BASF, diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) are part of our DNA. They are fundamental values and central pillars of our corporate culture.

empowering voices & organizational culture

With more than 70 sites around the world in BASF’s Coatings division, we unite many nationalities, diverse backgrounds and ideas with open minds and diverse thoughts. We foster an active and inclusive culture and welcome the different perspectives of our colleagues, customers and partners.

Diversity goes beyond visible differences. It includes worldview, ethnic origin, age, gender, life model and career. It creates an environment in which all people belong, with fair treatment and respect. This enrichment enables us to create a dynamic workplace that is innovative, creative and successful.

BASF Coatings stands for a culture in which diversity of thought is encouraged and in which all employees feel valued for who and how they are as individuals.

Many of our colleagues are committed to DE&I topics. They form networks that are as diverse as the topic itself.
