The economy can only fulfill the promise and the pursuit of innovation and competitiveness with more women. However, women do not always have it easy, especially in the digital industry: hard entry, more frequent exit and few opportunities to make the top of the list. The reason is often the lack of support from employers. Our first project in the economy topic area takes a look at the economy as a whole and at the ICT industry and wants to find out where we are right now, what goals companies have, what opportunities and hurdles, and what concrete measures are in place to promote women.
Even if access is successful, more than half of women leave the digital industry again. Hardly any make it into top management.Third Equality Report
Diverse teams are a guarantee for economic success. Recruiting events and employer branding can easily be geared toward women, women's networks and experts can be made visible, and flexible working time models and further training for women can be offered - especially in tech companies and IT departments, this makes a difference. In a representative survey, we want to show who is driving these issues in German companies, which measures for the advancement of women are already anchored, what works successfully and where there is still room for improvement.
