With UHLALA Consulting we contribute to equal opportunities for LGBTIQ+ people in working and professional life. We advise companies and organizations in planning and implementing their LGBTIQ+ diversity management. Especially in times of demographic change and the resulting shortage of skilled workers, an open and appreciative corporate culture is of great importance in order to be an attractive employer for current and potential future employees.
Our consulting approach is to develop measures individually and precisely for the client and to identify constructive solutions for specific challenges. Thanks to our many years of specialization in the field of LGBTIQ+ diversity and our cooperation with a wide range of companies, we have extensive expertise on how to ensure the inclusion of queer people in the workplace in the long term.
We also offer open trainings and workshops that anyone interested can attend and learn about a variety of diversity topics. Join us at our upcoming events to get an insight into our formats. All open trainings can also be booked as in-house events.
Das Training wird nach einer gemeinsamen Begrüßung in zwei Gruppen eingeteilt.

Teil 2: Rechtliche Anerkennung, Arbeitsverträge vor der Personenstandsänderung, Interaktion zwischen Arbeitgebenden, Arbeitnehmenden und Sozialversicherungsträger:innen, Rechte von trans*, inter* und nicht-binären Mitarbeitenden.
The training will be divided into two groups after a common welcome.
Part 1: General information, definitions, numbers, data and facts about trans*, inter* and non-binary. The unit is rounded out with recommendations to be an Ally.
Part 2: Legal recognition, employment contracts before the change of personal status, interaction between employers, employees and social security institutions, rights of trans*, inter* and non-binary employees.
We are happy to support employers in setting up their own LGBTIQ+ diversity strategy or in further developing an existing one. Within the framework of the strategy, goals are defined and measures are derived, for whose implementation we provide support and advice. The measures are adapted to the current status of LGBTIQ+ diversity management and to the goals of the overall diversity management.
We are happy to support our clients in creating or reviewing internal documents. Do you need a trans guide and are looking for expert support? You already have a guide on inclusive language and want feedback? Our goal is always to create non-discriminatory documents that are individually adapted in tone and language to the corporate culture of our clients. Our service repertoire also includes the design of a "Diversity ABC for employees", an anti-discrimination policy or the review of the Code of Conduct.
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of training and education formats. Both interactive workshops in small groups and larger formats with up to 300 people are possible. The training content is adapted to the expectations of the customers. We also differentiate whether the training is aimed at executives, HR or all employees. Thematically, we cover the entire spectrum of LGBTIQ+ diversity: from general awareness & allyship trainings to specialized topics such as "gender diversity", "gender-inclusive language" or "unconscious bias". The trainings can be conducted in English and German.
We offer workshops to find the company-specific LGBTIQ+ diversity challenges and derive possibilities for action. We prepare and facilitate the workshops and summarize them afterwards in a modern brochure. Participants are the LGBTIQ+ employees as well as straight allies of the company, who usually know best about the current challenges. The interactive workshops can be customized, with joint brainstorm sessions and group exercises to achieve the best possible results together.
Networks in companies play a major role when it comes to empowerment and inclusion of marginalized groups. In moderated workshops, we support our clients in setting up such a network, defining goals, assigning tasks, and working out how to proceed.
The network work can also be accompanied by us on an ongoing basis through regular coaching sessions. Progress can be reflected, challenges addressed and new impulses set. The reorientation or reactivation of an already existing network can also be the subject of these workshops.
Are you planning an internal event related to (LGBTIQ+) diversity? We are happy to advise you on the general concept and design, act as speakers or panelists at the event, or moderate it.
As part of our consulting services, we also offer certification of the LGBTIQ+ diversity management of companies, organizations and universities. With the help of an online audit, the current state of LGBTIQ+ engagement is captures and if a certain percentage is reached, we certify the employer, organization or university with the PRIDE Champion seal as LGBTIQ+ friendly. The seal demonstrates to potential and current employees, students, customers, suppliers, investors and business partners an open and appreciative culture for LGBTIQ+ people. Based on the results you achieve in the audit, we will be happy to advise you individually on sustainable improvement of internal structures, if required.
If you are interested in consulting services or diversity workshops, please feel free to send us an inquiry. We will be happy to forward you our consolidated portfolio of services and training courses or provide you directly with an individual offer for your inquiry.
Our consulting team was part of the Pride events at KING and led an interactive workshop on LGBTIQ+ diversity. After a short awareness training, the participants engaged in an exchange and solved workplace-relevant challenges on the topic of diversity and inclusion. The event was a great success!
„In cooperation with Uhlala Consulting we organized the Inditex Impact Day and set a milestone in Germany to become a more successful company. The Impact Day was an unforgettable experience for all of us. It was a day where we could develop new ideas to further enhance diversity and inclusion.
We all had a lot of fun and would like to thank our colleagues and Uhlala Consulting once again for making Inditex Impact Day such a successful day.
We are looking forward to continuing our cooperation.“
„While we’re actively promoting and increasing our DE&I-efforts within the company for a while already, we wanted to bring our workforce together to learn more about what LGBTQ is and what challenges the community is facing at work. We’re super happy to have partnered up with UHLALA, who did a great job giving our employees many valuable insights.“
„We've done several trainings with you over the past two years and have been consistently impressed.
At Adobe, we are constantly working to improve in all areas. This includes things like how we treat each other and being aware of our own privileges. Your training is an eye-opener, a valuable source of information, and a helpful practical way to interact with each other. Thank you for your important work and partnership.“
