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.

Reporting against standards

By reporting the percentage of women on the management board, 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).
