TUECHTIG offers space for inclusion


Dear Sir or Madam,

Height-adjustable desks or sign language interpreting on demand – the working environment at TUECHTIG is designed as accessible as possible. In the Berlin based coworking space, Stefanie Trzecinski and her team focus on inclusion in particular: "Here people with and without disabilities are working together – and not just next to each other." What exactly does that look like? Find out more in the interview.

Have a productive week,

Nadine Lormis
