In 2021, twenty videos were submitted by Roto employees from many different countries. “The first creative competition by the Wilhelm Frank Foundation was a complete success,” asserted Prof. Dr. Isold Geissler-Frank. This November, another competition is being advertised and is open for applications until January 15th, 2023.

Prof. Dr. Isolde Geissler-Frank founded the Wilhelm Frank Foundation in 2020 with her husband Alexander Frank and her children. The foundation’s motto is: “Enabling exchange, putting ideas into practice,” and the goal is to promote intercultural communication, science, and research. The latest competition gives participants the opportunity to work in a digital relay race to “showcase how diversity is an asset,” enthuses Alexander Frank.

Each team receives tasks and instructions before they get to know each other through a video conference. Every team member then has one week to work on their task and produce a video that will be handed over to the next teammate. The procedure will repeat, until all three team members produced a cohesive video that represents their chosen theme.

The objective is to create several videos that will be combined and edited together to form an intercultural composition. These compositions will be available on www.wilhelm-frank-stiftung.de.

For decades, the founding families of the Roto Group have supported projects that help families and individuals suffering from hardship, as well as charitable organizations. Elfriede, the wife of Wilhelm Frank, founded the Elfriede Frank Foundation more than 30 years ago to provide help in Leinfelden-Echterdingen.

The dedication of Elfriede and Wilhelm Frank’s descendants is consistently supported by employees of the Roto Group. Most recently, the Elfriede Frank Foundation, the Wilhelm Frank Foundation, and a number of other charitable organisations, received 6,000 euros collected by employees at Bad Mergentheim. “It is wonderful that employees of the Roto Group clearly consider the work of the Foundations to be worthwhile and important,” enthuses Alexander Frank. “Together, we can make this world a little bit better.”
