additional inform... In a profile of the diversity expert who is known beyond his country’s borders, there is the heading “born: yes, twice”. Since 1980 – due to operative consequences following a traffic accident – Nils Jent has been physically disabled and speech-impaired, as well as blind. A sentence from the institute homepage reads as follows: “This ‘change of sides’, and the consequent experiences from many years of rehabilitation as well as his return to ‘normal life’ lend a high degree of authenticity to his commitment to managing and leading diversity”.
