Women in middle and upper management

In 2017, as well, we continued pursuing the goal of achieving 30% women in management positions. We continue to support this goal through the "Fair Share" initiative. 
In Germany, the percentage of women in mid- and upper-level managementstays at 21.2 %. Group-wide, the value has not changed either with a steady 25.4 %.

Deutsche Telekom is one of the few DAX Groups where women have been part of the Board of Management for several years now. In addition, more and more women are working in international management teams below the Board of Management level.

You can find further information here and in the HR Factbook starting mid-May.

Reporting against standards

By reporting the percentage of women in middle and upper management, we fully cover the GRI 405-1 (Diversity of governance bodies and employees) GRI indicator and the S10-02 (Percentage of women in managerial positions) EFFAS indicator and partially cover the S10-01 (Percentage of women in total workforce) EFFAS indicator. This data is also relevant for criterion 15 (Diversity and health) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact  principle 6 (Elimination of discrimination).
