In order to increase the proportion of women in management positions, it is crucial to change the gender equality culture in the company. If you position yourself for equality and communicate and act accordingly to colleagues and employees, you contribute to a change.

Today, women are often very well trained for management positions and have both specialist and leadership skills. In order to take the step into a management position or the next management level, both women and men see it as sensible to continue to encourage and support them in this process.

A central reason for the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions continues to be their primary responsibility for so-called care work. This has an impact on their employment and career development - which also applies to men with care responsibilities. Facilitating work-life integration for both women and men is therefore essential to achieving equality.
