“Diversity is more than a buzzword”

WELT Conference – Women in Top Management

Diversity and the promotion of women have top priority at Henkel, and this is being confirmed again today: Kasper Rorsted, Henkel CEO, and Kathrin Menges, Corporate Senior Vice President Global Human Resources, are at the “WELT Conference” in Berlin, where they are discussing the subject of “Women in Top Management” with high-ranking representatives from industry and politics. Some 200 interested parties have been invited to the conference by the WELT Group (a German newspaper group) in order to push forward debate, exchange know-how on practical examples and talk about necessary measures and initiatives. At Henkel, diversity has been a practiced reality for many years. The company has methodically increased the percentage of women in senior roles during recent years and, with employees from 110 nations, is one of the most international companies with German roots. “Diversity is not a buzzword for us,” emphasized Kasper Rorsted at the conference. “Nevertheless, there are still obstacles that prevent women from reaching senior management positions – and it’s important that we work together to eliminate those obstacles.”
