Educator, decision-maker, or beginner: when we hear terms like these, our minds often form - too hastily - approximate images of the people they refer to. But these images often turn out to be wrong. Who says that beginners always have to be young? Or that educators are mostly female? For us at thyssenkrupp, one thing is clear: Stereotypes have no place here! That's why we openly address stereotypes, refute them, and promote diversity among our #GENERATIONTK employees. Because it's what moves them that counts for us - not what others think about them.
