Whether in politics, business or even in arts: men often still occupy the majority of leadership positions, while women are underrepresented in many areas of public life or business. Yet many examples show how diverse teams have a positive impact on corporate success. At TUI we are convinced: Mixed teams make a decisive contribution to our success. At the same time, we are aware that we are not yet where we should and want to be with the proportion of women in leadership positions. There is still work to be done. TUI has many successful female leaders in a wide range of areas. In our series "Female Leaders@TUI" we feature these colleagues and their inspiring thoughts on the subject of equality.
"Every employee at TUI should be able to bring to work their entire personality, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation or origin. On International Women's Day we are reminded that we are not yet where we want to be as a company when it comes to gender equality, especially with regard to the proportion of women in management positions. There is still work to be done - but we have already taken important steps in recent years. Until the outbreak of the pandemic, the proportion of female managers had been steadily increasing. In the Group Executive Committee, there is a clear commitment to more diversity. In my discussions with the senior leaders, I perceive great interest in the topic of women and careers; there is an awareness for an inclusive leadership culture. Therefore, I am optimistic about the future."
