Advancement of women to the Executive Board, Supervisory Board and in management positions

Kapsch TrafficCom AG has no formulated plan for the advancement of women to the Executive Board, Supervisory Board and management positions in the company and its subsidiaries. Candidates are selected with regard to the best appointment to free positions, irrespective of gender. The currently still low number of female managers at Kapsch TrafficCom is to do with the fact that the proportion of women in technical fields is still comparatively low. From the point of view of a technology company, a broader base of female engineers must be available. Talented colleagues are valued and can achieve management positions within the organization. Long-term initiatives are required to extend this from today’s levels. In this sense, Kapsch TrafficCom cooperates with schools, universities and universities of applied sciences. In addition, Kapsch TrafficCom is involved in the advancement of women through participation in special programs, such as “FIT Frauen in die Technik” [“Women in Engineering”] or “FEMTech”.

The work environment is an important factor for the compatibility of work and family. The flexible working hours model at Kapsch TrafficCom AG makes it easier to deal with different private and professional requirements. A group of dedicated female employees formed the initiative women@kapsch, which offers support for personal further development through events and networking opportunities. The company would also like to promote men and women working together, with the aim of using their combined strengths. This is not a matter of the classic separation of roles, but about strengthening strengths. Various activities should lead to a situation where there are more and more management positions filled by women at Kapsch TrafficCom.

In the past fiscal year, one member of the Supervisory Board was female: Sabine Kauper (selected by the annual general meeting). No women were represented in the Executive Board. Women are active in various management positions within Kapsch TrafficCom AG (such as Head of the Finance Department and Head of the Legal Department) and its subsidiaries (e.g. Head of Production at Kapsch Components GmbH & Co KG and Head of Finance of the APAC region).
