International Women’s Day – Gender Equality is one of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a signatory to the UN Global Compact, Sivantos Group is committed to promoting these Goals while also using its expertise and strengths to maximize its contribution.
On the International Women’s Day, we need to state that only 14% of Sivantos’ managers were women by the end of 2017. Sivantos aims to increase this percentage throughout the coming years and diversify its share of executive managers with more females in leading roles.
Sivantos also participates, wherever possible, in activities aiming to introduce girls to traditionally “male” jobs in technology, for instance the German government’s “Girls’ Day” initiative. We strongly pursue gender equality in our group even if we admit that there is still a long way to go. The most important step often is the first one.
