About Us

Who we are 

DisCheck is a consulting collective that supports companies, organizations, institutions and all interested people in designing their media content and internal structures in a discrimination-sensitive, intersectional and authentically diverse way. 


Currently, DisCheck comprises 19 experts and various DisCheck consultants. We bring many different and important expertise and perspectives in the field of anti-discrimination, are marginalized people ourselves, and advocate for a more discrimination-sensitive, intersectional, and diverse media landscape and corporate structures. 

We recognize that no one person can be an expert "on everything." Therefore, a broad range of expertise and different perspectives are very important to us. We also make sure that the expertise we offer reflects our own perspectives. As experts, team members deal exclusively with topics that affect them (negatively).  

What we do.     

In addition to our personalized consulting services, we also offer a variety of workshops and lectures and review and analyze diverse content such as texts, videos, promotional materials and co. in any format and size. We also support companies, for example, not only in making their media content more discrimination-sensitive, but also in addressing these important issues internally. In addition, clients can book us as awareness and trust persons for events or joint projects.


In general, we draw attention to problems, reproduced discrimination and white spots* in projects. It is indispensable to us to show our clients new perspectives, which is why we give them suggestions for improvement, alternatives and new ideas with every feedback. 


A sustainable learning effect is all-important to us. We achieve this by communicating with our customers at eye level. We not only point out concerns and terminology, but also explain them. For us, this also means that we do not gloss over anything, but name problems directly and honestly. We also recommend concrete solutions and further learning materials.


Of course, we attach great importance to discretion and protect the privacy of our customers.

Motivation & Vision

We want to help shape a media world that no longer lives at the expense of marginalized people, but where diversity, representation, and anti-discrimination are prioritized and authentically implemented.


Media are a big part of our society and shape many processes of our thinking and acting. In order to dismantle discriminatory structures sustainably and in the long term, it is therefore essential to critically question and often actively change the media content we create and consume.


Marginalized people have the right to feel represented and respected in our media without having to fight for it, and they have the right to media content that does not (re)traumatize and discriminate. 

We want to normalize discrimination-sensitive media review because we all make mistakes and have white spots* that we can't see without support.


We want to draw attention to the importance of inclusion of marginalized voices in our media world and society. That's why we try to show what possibilities can arise when we free up stages for people whose voices are underrepresented and ignored.

Our History.          

Since our foundation in November 2020, we have been offering companies, organizations and individuals our expertise in the field of discrimination-sensitive media design & corporate structuring.


After numerous influential major companies published discriminatory advertising content in quick succession in 2020, which received substantial criticism from marginalized people, yet without concrete change, it was clear to us: it can't go on like this! Preventive measures and change were needed.

We thought about how we could do our part to create a media world that actively considers marginalized people and focuses on discrimination sensitivity and intersectionality. So back then, seven of us came together to form our collective DisCheck. Today we are more than 17 experts in the team and as external consultants, who say unitedly: 

Stop discriminatory media content - seek help instead of excuses!

*White spots describe a lack of awareness of something that we ourselves cannot perceive and recognize. The term is a discrimination-sensitive alternative to the term "blind spots".
