Statements of the companies
With the highest scores, Accenture and Hewlett Packard Enterprise show that they have already created a variety of adequate changes to enable diversity in leadership positions and secure first place in the ranking.
In second place are Berliner Wasserbetriebe and Porsche AG.
Third place is also occupied by two companies with equal points. Intel Germany and Santander Consumer Bank prove that they have understood the importance of diversity measures and are already successful in implementing them.
Companies have recognised that the advancement of female executives should be a firmly established corporate goal.
By participating in the FKi we want to challenge and test ourselves. The external view on our own structures, developments and offers reveals and activates development potentials in our own organisation. Equality must not be a lip service: it requires key figures and measurable goals that are regularly monitored. The FKi does just that.
We have had an annual index since the Women’s Career Index (FKi) was established in 2012. For us, the FKi is both an incentive and confirmation. It helps us make fact-based decisions and shows us where we stand in comparison to our competitors.
RWE is currently undergoing probably the greatest transformation in its corporate history. We cannot and will not afford to make gender distinctions and we need all our employees to make this transformation a success. Regular participation in the Women’s Career Index helps us to measure the success of our measures to achieve gender equality and our change processes.
For MTU Aero Engines, the FKi is a good instrument for putting our current strategies and measures regarding gender equality to the test. At the same time, we can measure ourselves against other successful companies in this regard. Only through continuous optimisation can we achieve our vision of a completely equal working environment.
