Stadtwerke München (SWM), the municipal energy expert of the City of Munich, is one of the largest energy and infrastructure companies in Germany. They supply the city with energy (electricity, natural gas, district heating, district cooling) and with fresh drinking water from spring sources in a safe and climate-friendly manner. In addition, SWM operates 18 indoor and summer swimming pools. Their transport subsidiary MVG is responsible for environmentally and urban mobility by underground, bus and tram, as well as with new innovative mobility solutions.
SWM is investing in the further expansion of renewable energy production for electricity, heating and cooling, in the area-wide expansion of fibre optics and the LoRa-WAN, in the electrification of individual traffic and in the construction of company housing. In all areas, they are pushing ahead with digitalization. With their commitments, SWM is laying the foundations for the networked and liveable city of the future.
In cooperation with strong partners, SWM further develops proven concepts and drives innovation.
The SWM Group employs almost 10,000 people. This makes them one of the largest employers in the region and one of the largest training companies.
Right at our first FKI participation, we achieved a very good ranking – proof that our efforts to bring women into management positions are bearing fruit. The proportion of female managers at SWM is 20 per cent, a figure that has quadrupled in the past two decades. But we want to increase this figure further to at least 25 percent. This can only be achieved with targeted and tangible measures. We work with mentoring systems, network structures and generally promote a corporate culture that is based on trust, diversity and equal cooperation. In addition, we are a modern company working on important future projects in Munich, making us a very attractive employer – also and especially for women. We will further strengthen this with further measures.
Werner Abrecht SWM:
“FKI participation spurs us on. We work with mentoring systems, network structures and provide targeted support for our female colleagues. In this way, we have succeeded in significantly increasing the proportion of female managers in recent years. Our goal is as clear as it is ambitious: at least 25 percent of female managers.
