We invite you
to move with us

With our gender and diversity expertise, we accompany organizations in the comprehensive promotion of equity.

We offer consulting and support in the development and sustainable establishment of a diverse corporate culture.

A high degree of openness and sensitivity in dealing with current social developments characterizes our research.

The coaching and workshops offered by MOVES are based on systemic, solution- and actionoriented approaches.

What we do


Our understanding of research is based on a Responsible Research and Innovation approach. This means that we focus on societal challenges and tie our activities to the highest ethical standards.


We believe that an attractive work environment can be created when all employees are offered equal opportunities for participation, regardless of gender, age, origin, sexual orientation, disability, or religion.


Our workshops fundamentally strengthen the ability to think and act in an equality-oriented way and promote a corporate, organizational or team culture that is characterized by equal opportunities.


Systemic-constructivist coaching is an effective method to work on problems in a focused and solution-oriented way within a short period of time. The topics are manifold, the focus is on individual empowerment.
