Inclusion & Barrier-free

Diversity is a fact, inclusion is an act!

Cooperation with the myAbility talent program

As a media company, it is important for us to take responsibility and represent our attitude accordingly. With myAbility Social Enterprise GmbH, we have had a strong cooperation partner at our side since the beginning of the year and are happy to be to be part of the myAbility Talent Program. The barrier-free career program for students and academics with disabilities and chronic illnesses, which is the first of its kind in German-speaking countries, promotes talent through career coaching as well as networking and job shadowing opportunities. At P7S1, we not only want to expand our own talent pool, but also want to support these talents to position themselves confidently in the job market. 

myAbility Gold-Partner-Auszeichnung

 

We are very pleased to have been awarded the status of Gold Partner of myAbility! Next year we will be part of the career programme for students with disabilities and chronic illnesses for the second time. As a partner, we have so far not only been able to provide exciting insights and tips from ProSiebenSat.1's point of view, but also to raise awareness among our employees and move forward on the path to an inclusive corporate culture. Because we know: Diverse and inclusive teams are even more successful!

Barrier-free offerings

The ProSiebenSat.1 Group also cooperates with Arbeitsgemeinschaft Behinderung und Medien e.V. (abm) which is responsible for an extensive TV offering broadcast nationwide for the circumstances, concerns and interests of people with disabilities. The Group has supported the initiative since 2000 with the TV magazine CHALLENGE, which is broadcast every first Saturday of the month on both Kabel Eins and SAT.1 GOLD. In a half-hour report, people with disabilities are motivated to actively participate in social life in accordance with their respective requirements. In addition, CHALLENGE brings non-disabled people closer to life with disabilities, breaks down prejudices and promotes the idea of inclusion. As part of the cooperation between the abm and the ProSiebenSat.1 Group, it was also possible this year to integrate the media library of the joint venture into the HbbTV offering of the stations SAT.1 GOLD and Kabel Eins. As a result, "CHALLENGE" is the first fully inclusive series to be offered completely barrier-free, i.e. with subtitles, audio description, sign language interpreters and easy language.
