The key advantages at a glance
The Women Career Index is the management tool to clearly measure and sustainably improve the advancement of women.
What criteria are used for indexation?
The index model can be used regardless of company size or sector. The basis of the FKi analysis is the data that the company provides us with by filling out the three-part questionnaire. In case of repeated participation, the data only needs to be updated.
Can I compare my company with industry benchmarks?
Yes, with the dashboard you also get a comparison with other companies.
Will my results be published?
You have a choice:
Public participation: You choose whether your company is publicly named in the index and at the events.
Anonymous participation: You choose whether your company uses all aspects of the index but is not named publicly.
What is the scientific basis of the methodology?
For the FKi, theoretical and empirical studies on career advancement of women in companies were analysed and assessed together with social scientists and economists from the DIW and the TU Berlin worldwide. In addition, numerous interviews were conducted with personnel directors or personnel officers in various companies. In a second step, the different statistical methods were screened and discussed to what extent they could be used in such a sophisticated set of instruments. Based on these preliminary studies and with the help of a pre-test, the actual instrument was then developed in several stages over two years (2012-2014). The FKi was developed through collaboration with, among others.
