“Our framework conditions perform well in the benchmark. We offer flexible working hours, mobile working and have flexible childcare facilities at large locations. That this is not enough is clear to us! If there is to be real change, women must also make decisions, and they must do so in management positions. That is what we are tackling now. Our goal is to fill 30 percent of our management positions with women. We have committed ourselves to this in the Executive Management Board. To achieve this, we have launched a number of measures, such as recruiting campaigns that explicitly target women, targeted positioning of women in succession plans, a minimum number of women in leadership development programs, and more to come.
