Equal opportunities for men and women have been firmly anchored at Aareal Bank for a long time, and are an integral part of our diversity concept. We want to improve the conditions for women in particular to take on management or senior expert functions, and hence further increase the proportion of women in these positions. To this end, we have taken a number of measures to support the identification, promotion and advancement of female talent.
As part of our systematic human resources work, for example, we specifically address our specialist areas with regard to the promotion of female talent within the management and expert career paths and offer our employees training courses specially tailored to women. Furthermore, we offer comprehensive services to improve the compatibility of career and family or career and care, and actively promote participation in cross-industry mentoring, coaching and development programs that prepare talented female managers for (top) management positions.
Participation in the FKi is a central component of our efforts to further increase the proportion of women. The results and recommendations thus serve as a basis for further analyses and measures to be initiated to help us increase the proportion of women in management positions.
