Commitment to Equity and Inclusion

At DataCite, we are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.

We know that the collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and DataCite’s achievement. We believe that a diverse team, where everyone feels valued and supported, is essential to our success.

As a membership organization, our commitment to equity and inclusion in the global research community is unwavering. We believe that by fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, we empower communities across the globe to thrive and contribute their unique perspectives and expertise. We actively work to dismantle barriers, promote and enable equal access to resources, ensuring that our global community can collectively contribute: to ensure that research outputs and resources are openly available and connected so that their reuse can advance knowledge across and between disciplines, now and in the future.
