In 2019, as well, we continued pursuing the goal of achieving 30% women in management positions.
In Germany, the percentage of women in middle and upper management rose from 21.0 percent to 21.9 percent in 2019. Likewise, the figure for the entire Group increased and now stands at 26 percent. In the national companies outside Germany (excluding TMUS), the figure declined slightly due to a reduction in mandates and the deconsolidation of Albanian Mobile Communications.

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).
