Women in Business in Germany

Although more and more women are making inroads into more senior positions in German companies, it is noted that Germany lags behind many other European countries in its progress in this issue.

The preponderance of engineers in senior positions in German companies and the traditional lack of women studying these disciplines possibly accentuate this lack of progress.

Many commentators would say that the introduction of European statutes on workplace diversity, coupled with Germany’s changing demographics, will quicken the pace of change in this area.
