Michael Stuber

President & CEO - European Diversity and LGBT MARKETS
Germany's 'Diversity-Guru'

How can increasingly diverse potential be leveraged? This has been the key question in Michael Stuber's work for twenty years. While earning a degree in industrial engineering and management from the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) he had already been involved in European projects in the areas of education & employment. After four years of working with two leading consultancies in personnel and organisation development he founded, in 1997, his international Diversity firm with the two brands European Diversity and Ungleich Besser. Through his ground-breaking work, he has become an acclaimed researcher, author and speaker – known as the 'Diversity Guru'.

Michael Stuber has developed the Propelling Potential Principle to address key business issues: Inter-nationalisation, M&As and competitive pressure require new approaches to leverage increasingly diverse potential. In order to achieve this, Michael Stuber works on two levels: organisational and individual. He changes processes and cultures to make them more effective and attractive for different stakeholders. And he works with managers and employees to provide them with information and tools that enable them to operate successfully in a constantly changing business environment. The Propelling Potential Principle is Michael Stuber's systematic approach to address different challenges in a consistent way.
