Monika Wörwag: I would like to state that we have already come a long way in this respect. Many women work in our company – as is generally the case in the health sector – and many are in a leading position. It depends on the individual person and her attitude. For example, from the start we have had a strong female country manager team, female physicians with PhDs who are still mostly with us today. Just like the company, they have developed and are actively supported and promoted by us. Nowadays, 12 of the 21 country managers are women.
Many highly qualified women from many different nations also work in our international marketing authorization department, which is managed by a woman. We deliberately use the respective individual strengths of our employees in mixed teams. This takes the employees and the company further.
