Member Siemens AG

Our strategic human resources planning shows very clearly that we need women in our workforce today more than ever.

We therefore assure that men and women have the same development opportunities from the time they join our company all the way up to higher hierarchy levels. For us it is very clear: Companies benefit from women in leadership positions. Being part of the ‘Chefsache’ initiative helps us to drive the issue of gender balance in top management positions and thus raise public awareness for this topic.

„The ‘Chefsache’ initiative is chefsache because the development, advancement and leadership of employees can not be delegated.“
