Women in Tech & Female Leaders at Zühlke
Stronger corporate culture, better performance, greater innovative strength – the list of benefits from diverse teams is a long one, and those benefits have been proven by numerous studies over a long period. As a global innovation service provider, we know how important and enriching diverse teams are and that innovation can only really flourish through diversity.
We believe that an inclusive culture, diverse teams, and variety at all levels of the company contribute to new, innovative perspectives and long-term success – both for the company and for the employees themselves. That's why we at Zühlke are committed to narrowing the gender gap in technical professions and leadership positions and to advancing equal opportunity.
Closing the gender gap in tech jobs
It is particularly important to us to increase the proportion of women in the still male-dominated tech professions, and in management positions. To do this, we want to attract more women to our tech jobs and build up a pool of diverse talents. This also includes creating an environment in which women can grow personally and professionally, fulfil their potential and succeed. In addition to promoting a real, 'lived' culture of commitment and mutual support, we therefore attach great importance to equal opportunities and the elimination of gender-specific differences and prejudices in our teams, and place emphasis on flexible career models.
Strong partnerships and initiatives
We want to continue our efforts through our partnership with Global Digital Women. The organisation gives women in tech professions a platform, connects them, gives experts, female leaders, women in tech & IT and their success stories increased visibility across whole industries and promotes the career growth of women.
To encourage our employees – but especially women and under-represented groups – to speak openly and confidently about their achievements in the workplace and beyond, every month we run #IamRemarkable workshops that everyone in the company can take part in. #IamRemarkable is a Google initiative and part of our internal diversity activities that has the aim of discussing skills and experiences in the area of 'self promotion', learning more about them in relation to one's own career and celebrating professional successes together.
