We attach great importance to creating even better conditions for the compatibility of family and work in the future. By actively involving different potential groups and constructively using different knowledge, we want to continue to increase our competitiveness and create sustainable values. The proportion of women at management levels 1 to 3 below the executive board increased from 8% in 2010 to 14% in 2014 and rose to 15% by the end of 2017. The share of women in management is expected to increase to 20% by 2020.
