Diversity

Women in total workforce

In recent years, we have succeeded in maintaining the proportion of women in the total workforce at over a third and expect a slight upward trend in the future.

Women in middle and upper management

In 2018, 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 management has decreased slightly to 21.0 %. Group-wide, the value has not changed with a steady 25.4 %.

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).

Women on the management board

In 2018, 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.

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.

Employees with disabilities

Deutsche Telekom has already exceeded the prescribed minimum rate of 5 percent of disabled employees for a good many years, so that it heads the list of DAX 30 companies on this count. In 2018 Deutsche Telekom again raised this figure by 0.1 percentage points.
