In 2014, we became the first DAX company to develop a training program to prepare employees for supervisory board positions. The program was developed in collaboration with the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT). We are particularly interested in encouraging women to take a seat on the supervisory board. We have trained a total of 64 potential supervisory board members so far, around half of which work at national companies outside of Germany. Around half of the program’s graduates were then appointed to a Deutsche Telekom Supervisory Board.
