Our people are our strength and our inspiration.
Our diversity at Uniper is a variety of talents, mindsets, perspectives, qualities, abilities, and attributes of our employees and business partners.
Our individual differences make our company strong and more successful – both the visible differences, e.g. gender or age; as well as invisible differences, e.g. experiences, values, education, sexual orientation, or religious background.
“Our ambition is to create a safe environment that encourages everyone to participate wholeheartedly. By removing barriers and reducing bias, we create equal opportunities – our contribution to a more diverse, inclusive and fairer workplace. “ Larissa Leienbach, DEI Manager
“DEI is part of Uniper’s sustainable transformation. A workforce that represents a diverse collection of experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds is more likely to understand environmental and societal footprint and transform it into a sustainable and positive impact. My mission as a leader is to enable an inclusive work environment where every voice is heard and valued.” Frank Plümacher, EVP Sustainability & HSSE
“At Uniper “treating everyone in a fair way”, and “making everyone feel included” are serious topics. This is why we regularly seek feedback from our employees, we listen to them, and we make changes so that we can get closer and closer to our vision of DEI.“ Valentina Verrini, EVP Operational Excellence
“Diversity and inclusion - these values represent our unique culture and define who we are, not just as professionals but how we treat each other as family.“ Colleagues from the Dubai Office
“Kindness, humanity, and respect are at the forefront of company culture and DEI mindset at Uniper.

“I constantly learn about my biases about others and myself, and it surprises me every time. I honor differences, as they represent the richness of life, and this helps me to understand myself better.
