The PROUT AT WORK-Foundation increases awareness of LGBT*IQ in the workplace in ways that can be seen, felt and experienced.
That way, equal opportunities for LGBT*IQ 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 LGBT*IQ 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 LGBT*IQ questions they may have. We are strong advocates of the fact that LGBT*IQ diversity in companies pays off: on an economic, cultural and human level.

LGBT*IQ networks

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