Ratings

Please note these ratings only concern how some individuals directly and personally experienced DEI in these companies or institutions; different people may have different experiences. Goods, creativity, and other aspects of provided services are not considered in these ratings. It is also important to note that entities dealing directly with DEI on a daily basis face more challenging situations than businesses where DEI is only part of every day operations, therefore reaching a high rating is more challenging. We welcome feedback and privacy-compliant questions, as well as suggestions for new ratings mostly focused on the global music scene and Berlin – we may grow in the future and expend to other cities. You can write us via info @ dif-ev .org or the contact form that can be anonymous.

➔ Feel free to send your reviews or experiences at BER Airport as social media post or complaint email screen shots, with parts you want to remain private redacted, or a text: we will collect these to create an archiving post and send to the complaint service of BER as it is a main point of entry and exit for musicians in Berlin so we feel it is an important matter.
