Queer is

The PROUT AT WORK-Foundation increases awareness of queer topics in the workplace in ways that can be seen, felt and experienced.
That way, equal opportunities for queer people become a matter of course, a part of everyday life, and talents and energies can be fully realised.

This openness benefits everyone: individuals and companies, society and business.


Where we come in

PROUT AT WORK is a leading German think tank, providing advice and shaping the debate on queer topics in the workplace. Our goal is equal opportunities for people of any sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or sexual characteristics.

We support and guide individuals, networks, companies and organisations by providing strategic guidance on workplace culture as well as educational services and sensitivity training for employees and executives.

Together, we can increase our scope for action and shape today’s and tomorrow’s society.

Social Impact

Workplace culture

Small or large, local or global – we work with companies and organisations. We broaden traditional structures and help you establish and grow a work environment that takes everyone into account and appeals to everybody.


At PROUT AT WORK, executives, HR managers, diversity managers and strategists of any kind will find experts for any relevant work-related questions they may have regarding queer matters. We are strong advocates of the fact that queer diversity in companies pays off: on an economic, cultural and human level.

Queer Networks

We act as an umbrella network for queer networks in companies and organisations. We foster the exchange of experiences and best practices and provide support for the establishment, development and expansion of queer networks.


We’re here to assist and advise individuals – in professional as well as private matters. We offer solutions, broaden horizons and connect people with each other or with someone who can provide answers.




“As a sponsor of the network, the queer community is particularly close to my heart.”

Dr. Theresa von Fugler is a biochemist, “doer” and family person. As an executive with global experience in the branded goods industry, she has been Managing Director at Sanofi Consumer Healthcare in Germany since September 2021. She is a sponsor of the internal LGBT*IQ network in Germany and is particularly committed to diversity in the workplace.
