Past event

On the occasion of the 10th German Diversity Day, the Think Tank Lab and its partners cordially invite you to this two-part event at the German Council on Foreign Relations, Rauchstr. 17, 10787 Berlin and online.

As key influencers of public policy and public opinion, think tanks bear the responsibility to develop solutions that adequately represent the diversity of those affected by today’s global challenges. German think tanks are increasingly striving to reflect the breadth of German society and that of the societies we research and advise on in our workforce, reports, and events. On the 10th German Diversity Day, we will discuss why diversity in think tanks matters with representatives from think tanks, foundations, and policy. We will assess what stands in the way of more diversity, equity, and inclusion in think tanks today, share good practices, and discuss how we can move forward on this together.


The Think Tank Lab is a joint project of the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS). It is kindly supported by Stiftung Mercator and Robert Bosch Stiftung.
