boeker-consult defines the 'diversity' approach more over in the frame of references of the UN-Human Rights Treaties and of the EU-Guidelines as to the Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination policy of the European Union and the European Convention on Human Rights of the Council of Europe.

There are some approaches and contexts where 'diversity' is been understood very shortend. Especialy when the legal binding basic of human rights and anti-discimination laws are rejected as 'unnecessary ballast'. The 'diversity approach' which we support and which derived from the global human and civil rights movements is strongly connected to the knowdlege of all people about their human rights and the accessibility of justice for human rights.

The diversity approach shall help to create a culture, politics and environment which reflects the basic of a developed civilization which is based on individual human rights, on tolerance and acceptance of all human beings as equals. A meaningfull 'diversity approach' can never be limited to the aspect of the growth of economy; it works for a mutual living and sharing of growth and wealth in peace without limits or borders.

When we work mainly focused on women's rights and a world free of discrimination and violation on grounds of 'gender' and 'sex' and offer consultancy on the implementation of gender mainstreaming we always have in mind a more divers approach: the mainstreaming of all defined human rights in the mind of all people, all administrations, and politics and economy throughout. We assist to fix human rights based empowerment in the minds and institutions of our societies. We want contribute to create and live a private and professional and public life which guarantees all human beings human rights no matter how divers they are in every moment and environment.  'Diversity' of human kind is a rich cultural and natural heritage in all aspects. 'Diversity' is not a 'nice lable' if you implement and respect it in the human rights framework- it adds value to your life and social context, to business, organisations and all stakeholders objectives.

We build on empowerment, capacity building and the self help approaches, which can unfold the potentials of all human beings as activists of their own life, their families and in the society as a whole. We work for your access of all your human rights and for you to participate and contribute as a citizen knowing and achieving your human rights so that you and others can act as 'agents of change' for an equal rights based and peaceful life.

While Germany has a Federal Anti-Discimination Agency it is not taking up cases. We would take up your case, assits yxou, forwar it for you or find ther supporters and experts for your cas.
