Women’s networks

Published on Sep 4, 2017. Modified on Dec 13, 2018.

Women in Business

Women in Business (WIB) initiative was created by women to allow the peers (with direct and real support from the organization) to take an active role in creating and shaping the future for women in business within DB Schenker, but also to act as ambassadors in the broader environment.

The goal of WIB is to unlock the full potential of women at work and to advance equal (not preferential) opportunities and treatment in relation to their male counterparts.

The objective of WIB is to increase the portion of women in (top) management positions in a natural way (no quota) and to provide a platform and framework to support all actions that will advance women within DB Schenker.

Some of the initiatives of the group is to set and track the KPI’s for women, mentor at least one high potential female colleague and provide opportunities to network, assist female employees to build their network and business relationships, with inspirational female role models which can act as an example of what they can strive for.

WIB Steering committee consists of 7 Senior women from different business units, located in Essen Germany.
